Italian Renaissance (Remote)

Tuesdays, October 11 - November 15
4 - 5:30 p.m. ET

The Italian Renaissance is a period of great cultural change and achievement. It is an explosion of creativity, of beauty, and of excellence. Philosophical ideas of the Italian Renaissance such as the dignity of Man/Woman (a precursor of the principle of basic human rights), and the belief in an ideal, in a free world, still inform our discourse today. This course examines this great cultural achievement through some major artists/authors such as: Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo Buonarroti, Raffaello Sanzio, Filippo Brunelleschi, Ludovico Ariosto, as well as some famous women of that period.
