Between the birth of Dante in 1265 and the death of Galileo in 1642, painting, sculpture, and architecture would all change in a striking fashion. Likewise, the thought and self-conception of humanity would take on a completely new aspect. Sciences would be born—or emerge in an entirely new guise. The ideas that broke these molds began, and continued to flourish, in the city of Florence in northern central Italy. These new ideas would eventually spread across Europe, yet wherever they took hold they would retain an element essential to their origin.
In this sweeping and magisterial four-hundred-year history, Paul Strathern shows how Florence, and the Florentines themselves, played a unique and transformative role in the Renaissance.
