Description
 
Andrew Langley (au); Andy Crawford (ph); Carey Scott (ed). Discover the world of the Renaissance -- an age of creativity, experimentation, & discovery. This book, profusely illustrated in full color, provides an exciting introduction to the period that began in Europe in the mid-1400s, which we now call the Renaissance, meaning “rebirth.” There was a revival of interest in the classical works of Greece & Rome, which inspired a new way of looking at the world. Thinkers turned away from the medieval preoccupation with saving souls & avoiding temptation, & began instead to explore people’s individuality & to educate them in their duties to society. This became a movement known as humanism. At the same time, artists celebrated the beauty of the human body in more lifelike paintings & sculptures. Juv. aud.
