This book on the Renaissance in Rome is already somewhat older (it dates from ) and it has a somewhat old-fashioned feel. But to me it now seems indispensible in understanding the Renaissance city with its unsurpassed works by Bramante, Raphael and Michelangelo and its impressive cityscapes in the Vatican and on /5.

A shared outlook, a persistent set of intellectual concerns, similar cultural assumptions and a commitment to common ideological aims bound Roman humanists and artists to a uniquely Roman world. This is a riveting book about the massive role the Medicis and Florence played in not only the wonderful art and architecture of the Renaissance, but also the emergence of what today we call science.

And, there’s great perspective on the concurrent vicious political machinations of the powerful families and willing and enabling corruption of /5(93). The Renaissance in the city-state of Rome began in the early 15th century during a time of relative peace.

This allowed art and other Renaissance pursuits to flourish in the Italian city-state. In fact, the center of the Italian Renaissance shifted from Florence to Rome throughout this century, as it became a beacon of humanist ideals. The movement first expanded to other Italian city-states, such as Venice, Milan, Bologna, Ferrara and Rome.

Then, during the 15th century, Renaissance ideas spread from Italy to. But Rome became the real centre of the High Renaissance at the beginning of the 16th century, under the papacy of Julius II, who spent untold riches on ambitious artistic projects designed to glorify the papacy as successor to the ancient Roman Empire.

The Renaissance is known as the “rebirth” or “revival” of Greek and Roman styles and conventions. Such Greek and Roman influences are well noted in the Italian-made pieces such as The Palazzo Rucellai, which can be compared to the Colosseum, David, which can be compared to the Kritios Boy, and The Birth of Venus, which can be compared to the Aphrodite of : Danielle Obolevitch.

A brief treatment of the Renaissance follows. For full treatment, see Europe, history of: The Renaissance. Origins and rise of humanism. The term Middle Ages was coined by scholars in the 15th century to designate the interval between the downfall of the Classical world of Greece and Rome and its rediscovery at the beginning of their own century, a revival in which they felt they were.

thousands of visitors to Rome each year, show individual human beings who are noble and capable of perfection. This optimistic view of human nature was also expressed by many other Renaissance painters and writers.

The Renaissance began in fourteenth-century Italy, where the Catholic Church financed many intellectual and artistic endeavors. "Dark Ages": Perjorative (negative) term for the middle ages coined by Renaissance thinkers (Petrarch). Renaissance thinkers considered the years after the fall of Rome ( A.D.) as a period of superstition and ignorance (and that they were living in a new period of learning!) Modern Historians do not use this term.

The Renaissance in Rome occupied a period from the midth to the midth centuries, a period which spawned such masters as Michelangelo and Raphael, who left an indelible mark on Western figurative city had been a magnet for artists wishing to study its classical ruins since the early s.

A revived interest in the Classics brought about the first archaeological study of Roman. During the Renaissance, vernacular, or popular, literature emerged, although Latin remained the language of scholarship. The development of printing brought on a communications revolution in which the printed book became a profound force for change.

Petrarch exemplifies the mixture of the old and the new in the Renaissance. The foundations of modern nation-states and legal codes were established during the Middle Ages. From about the eleventh century (centuries before the Renaissance), judicial courts in continental Europe drew upon the law codes of ancient Rome as models for the development of.

Part of the changes brought by the Renaissance, or perhaps one of the causes, was the change in attitude to pre-Christian books. Petrarch, who had a self-proclaimed “lust” to seek out forgotten books among the monasteries and libraries of Europe, contributed to a new outlook: one of (secular) passion and hunger for the knowledge.
