Abstract:

Our modern conception of the Renaissance has been changed substantially by the scholarship of the last 50 years, and the British contribution to this research has been enormous. An essential part of this scholarship is contained within this lavishly illustrated selection of lectures delivered by distinguished historians to the British Academy. The lectures cover the period circa 1400 to 1520 and illustrate two aspects of Italy in this period, the political background to the great cultural flowering, and the art of Florence and Rome.
