Description
This is the first comprehensive study of the historiography of the Renaissance since Wallace Ferguson's The Renaissance in Historical Thought of 1948. Taking its departure both from developments in history-writing during the Renaissance itself, and from Jacob Burckhardt's hugely influential and controversial characterisation of the Renaissance of 1860, the collection of essays explores recent developments in understandings of the Renaissance from a range of different but interlocking chronological, geographical and disciplinary perspectives.
