This study places the remarkable cultural achievements of those early years in full historical perspective. Holmes describes the world of Dante and Giotto--and the circumstances in which their innovations became possible--through a thorough examination of the politics, economy, culture, and religion of early Renaissance Tuscany, explaining how each of these factors influenced the art of the period. A comprehensive and abundantly-illustrated historical overview, this book will be welcomed by anyone interested in Renaissance art, literature, or history.
