Sample text

Cosimo de’ Medici was Florence’s wealthiest citizen in the middecades of the fifteenth century. His fortune, estimated at 150,000 florins, was greater than that of most European monarchs. l3 This extraordinary concentration of capital in the possession of Italy’s urban elites was the essential material foundation for Renaissance culture. As the dominant political force in cities large and small, they subsidized municipal buildings which remain today as symbols of civic pride. They also funded and embellished cathedrals, monasteries, friaries, and convents in the towns and countryside.

My hope is that after reading these essays readers will come away from this volume with more questions than answers, with more things to think about than facts, with a sense of the Renaissance more as an exciting way of considering the past than as a period that they now know. For underlying our changing ways of looking at the Renaissance are profound changes in the ways of thinking about the past, which have developed over the course of the last century. Not only has the range of subjects increased exponentially as the number and range of the essays in this volume can still only suggest, but many of us are much less interested in piling up facts and knowledge.
