Format: Paperback
This is one of the most important books in the study of Italian Renaissance (14th-16th century). For those who would like a readable but scholarly introduction to the Renaissance, this is it. The book is intended to explain the intellectual origin, spiritual inspiration and mental struggles of the great Renaissance scholars and artists. My professor once said to my class " this book is worth its weight in gold!" Though that might be a slight exageration, the book is certainly a worthwhile read. This book is one of the rare academic but mind racing, heart pounding books that one cannot put down until finish. Don't let the scholarliness intimidate you, push yourself to read it and you will see what I mean.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Kristeller is a heavy hitter on Renaissance thought. This is no broad overview or half thesis. Kristeller offers plenty of footnotes and covers the ideas of key thinkers and how they shaped Renaissance thought from Neo-Platonism to Humanism, and even Aristolean influences. It's obvious why Professor Steven Greenblatt cites Kristeller. However, what I appreciated is how Kristeller offers a balanced voice in the conversation about Humanism instead of proposing one key element of historical causality like Greenblatt in "The Swerve". Also Kristeller doesn't seek opportunistic moments to bash the Catholic Church. He makes a clear distinction on the definition of Humanism, and he later clarifies in what narrow sense one could apply the term Christian Humanism. If you're looking for a good analysis of Renaissance thought, I highly recommend this work.
