The Renaissance - a prelude

1 year 11 months ago - 6 months 3 weeks ago #3 by Charles Lester
Who are the writers and books that define the Renaissance? What of painters and composers? Following Durant we will first look at Italy and the years 1300- 1377.
This shall be called the age of Petrarch and Boccaccio. {with a look at the role of the Popes in Avignon}  
We have the letter that Petrarch wrote to Cicero; and also the Decameron of Boccaccio to consider, as replies to this note.
