Discover the influence of the Renaissance on today's society. The program begins by surveying the background of the Renaissance in Europe, from the collapse of the Roman Empire to the Crusades. After briefly treating medieval culture, it outlines the rise of humanism and events in fourteenth century Italy that nurtured the revival of interest in classical learning. It then examines the fifteenth century in art, letters, and learning that brought the Renaissance to its height in Italy in Europe.
