V. 1. Biondo Flavio (1392-1463), humanist and historian, was a pioneering figure in the Renaissance recovery of classical antiquity. While serving a number of the Renaissance popes, he inaugurated an extraordinary program of research into the history, institutions, cultural life, and physical remains of the ancient Roman empire. The Italia Illustrata (1453), which appears here for the first time in English, is a topographical work describing Italy region by region. Its aim is to explore the Roman roots of the Renaissance world. As such, it is the quintessential work of Renaissance antiquarianism. This is the first edition of the Latin text since 1559. V. 2. Biondo Flavio (1392 1463), humanist and historian, was a pioneering figure in the Renaissance discovery of antiquity; famously, he was the author who popularized the term Middle Age to describe the period between the fall of the Roman Empire and the revival of antiquity in his own time. While serving a number of Renaissance popes, he inaugurated an extraordinary program of research into the history, cultural life, and physical remains of the ancient world. Italy Illuminated (1453), of which this is the second and final volume, is a topographical work describing Italy region by region. Its aim is to explore the Roman roots of modern Italy. As such, it is the quintessential work of Renaissance antiquarianism. -- Amazon.com

Rome in triumph by Biondo Flavio( Book )

in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The threat of the Turks to the West dominated the period of the conception and writing of Rome in Triumph. The Fall of Constantinople (1453) has been emphasized as an important factor in Biondo's advocacy of Roman civilization in this work. Its framing certainly sets it in the context of resistance to Turkish encroachments, now threateningly close to Italy. In his dedication to Pius II Biondo speaks of an alliance of Italy, France, Spain and Germany for "the liberation of Europe" and of the role his work might play in stimulating such an enterprise. In the light of the lack of real success achieved by the Congress of Mantua, he concludes the whole work with a disillusioned warning that if Western Christians do not fight they will eventually suffer the fate of the Greeks. Two of the longer digressions concerned with contemporary events are more or less connected with the Turkish threat: the description of the victory celebration (March 1457) for the battle at Belgrade on 21-22 July, 1456 in Book 2, 51 and, in Book 5 (p.117d-118b), the commendation of Isabel of Burgundy's support (in 1454?) of a crusade against the Turks."--Provided by publisher
