The Story of Civilization 05. The RenaissanceSale!
The Renaissance (Volume 5): In this volume, Will Durant examines the economic seeds — the growth of industry, the rise of banking families, the conflicts of labor and capital — for Italy’s emergence as the first nation to feel the awakening of the modern mind. He follows the cultural flowering from Florence to Milan to Verona and eventually to Rome, allowing us to witness a colorful pageant of princes, queens, poets, painters, sculptors and architects. We see humanity moved boldly from a finite world to an infinite one.
