Abstract:

"As the writers in this volume show, the course of the Renaissance was moulded in a very fundamental way by the close linkages, connections and mutual commercial, intellectual and cultural influences that had developed in the mediaeval period between Islam and Christendom, and the degree of traffic between the two ... At all levels, the Ottoman world impinged directly on Renaissance life, and the intellectual awakening that the Renaissance represented owed almost as much from the interplay of East and West as it did to any process of self-regeneration drawing from Greek and Roman roots."--The Foreword by William Dalrymple This book brings together a range of essays from leading scholars and writers, providing a fascinating and original approach to the Renaissance which challenges settled certainties, such as the difference between East and West, the invariable conflict between Islam and Christianity, the 'rebirth' of European civilization from roots in classical Greece and Imperial Rome, and points the way for a comprehensive re-orientation of our thinking about the Renaissance.
