Published in 1860, Burckhardt's great work redefined our sense of the European past, wholly reinterpreting what has since been known simply as the Italian Renaissance. With unsurpassed erudition, Burckhardt illuminates a world of artistic and cultural ferment, innovation, and discovery; of revived humanism; of fierce tensions between church and empire; and of the birth of both the modern state and the modern individual.The Civilization of the Renaissance in Italyremains the single most important and influential account of this crucial moment in the history of the West.

"The greatest single book on the history of Italy between 1350 and 1550."--Hajo Holborn
