Publisher's Summary

The fifth in the new Naxos Audiobooks series "In a Nutshell", The Renaissance is a short and accessible introduction to the era that gave us Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Palestrina.
The Renaissance swept across Europe between the 14th and 17th centuries, heralding intellectual revolutions in science, art, philosophy, and politics, and marking a decisive shift towards modern thinking. The authoritative Peter Whitfield brings together all the different threads of this transformative period in a lucid and fascinating introduction.

Renaissance- In a nutshell

I have enjoyed this rapid trip through the treasures of the Renaissance for several reasons, the main one being that I have recently returned from a short visit to Florence. This book has put all that I saw and experienced in a clear and understandable sequence. It explains so much and in a “nutshell” format, that I would recommend anyone to listen carefully and absorb the information. It will certainly heighten the enjoyment of your Renaissance experience.
