Learn about the Renaissance period with iMindsJNR audio learning series for younger minds. The word ´´Renaissance” means ´´rebirth” in French. It was first used by French historian Jules Michelet in 1858, to refer to a ‘movement’ which took place between about the 13th and 16th centuries. This movement describes the transition from medieval to modern Europe, so there are no exact dates for when it began or ended. The Renaissance began in Italy some time at the end of the 13th century and spread to other countries in Western Europe, such as France, Spain and England. The movement is called the ´´rebirth” because, during that period, Western Europe rediscovered literary, philosophical and artistic work from ancient Greece and Rome. From this inspiration, Renaissance scholars developed ideas which have shaped the modern world. Before the Renaissance, many classical works had not been thought about for a thousand years. During the Renaissance, scholars and artists turned to these works to inspire them.

"I had determined to go as far as declaring in abstruse and puzzling utterances the future causes of the ´common advent´, even those truly cogent ones that I have foreseen. Yet lest whatever human changes may be to come should scandalise delicate ears, the whole thing is written in nebulous form, rather than as a clear prophecy of any kind." (Nostradamus) A lot of time has been spent covering the lives of history´s most influential figures, but how much of the forest is lost for the trees? When historians are asked to pick a point in history when Western civilization was transformed and guided down the path to modernity, most of them point to the Renaissance. Indeed the Renaissance revolutionized art, philosophy, religion, the sciences, and math. Individuals like Galileo, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, Dante, and Petrarch bridged the past and modern society. In Charles River Editors´ Legends of the Renaissance, listeners can get caught up on the lives of the most important men and women of the Renaissance in the time it takes to finish a commute. And they can do so while learning interesting facts long forgotten or never known. It´s safe to say there have been countless prophets and seers throughout history, but only one Nostradamus (1503-1566). Nostradamus has become a pop-culture fixture even among those who find nothing of note in his work. He is a cult figure among those who pore through his prophecies to look for proof that he foresaw major world events centuries ahead of time. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Linsenmayer.

More than ever before, the Renaissance stands out as one of the defining moments in world history. Between 1400 and 1600, European perceptions of society, culture, politics and even humanity itself emerged in ways that continue to affect not only Europe but the entire world. In this wide-ranging exploration of the Renaissance, Jerry Brotton shows the period as a time of unprecedented intellectual excitement, cultural experimentation, and interaction on a global scale, alongside a darker side of religion, intolerance, slavery, and massive inequality of wealth and status. Brotton skillfully guides us through the key issues that defined the Renaissance period, from its art, architecture, and literature, to advancements in the fields of science, trade, and travel. In its incisive account of the complexities of the political and religious upheavals of the period, the book argues that there are significant parallels between the Renaissance and our own era. This is the first clear and concise account of the Renaissance as a global phenomenon, an important new vision of the Renaissance for the 21st century written by a young Renaissance scholar of a new generation. 1.

Discusses Lorenzo´s relationships with other famous Renaissance legends, including Leonardo and Michelangelo. Includes a bibliography for further reading. "How beautiful is youth that is always slipping away." (Lorenzo de´ Medici) A lot of ink has been spilled covering the lives of history´s most influential figures, but how much of the forest is lost for the trees? When historians are asked to pick a point in history when Western civilization was transformed and guided down the path to modernity, most of them point to the Renaissance. Indeed the Renaissance revolutionized art, philosophy, religion, sciences, and math, with individuals like Galileo, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, Dante, and Petrarch bridging the past and modern society. In Charles River Editors´ Legends of the Renaissance, listeners can get caught up to speed on the lives of the most important men and women of the Renaissance in the time it takes to finish a commute, while learning interesting facts long forgotten or never known. Most historians credit the city-state of Florence as the place that started and developed the Italian Renaissance, a process carried out through the patronage and commission of artists during the late 12th century. If Florence is receiving its due credit, much of it belongs to the Medicis, the family dynasty of Florence that ruled at the height of the Renaissance. The dynasty held such influence that some of its family members even became pope. Among all of the Medicis, its most famous member ruled during the Golden Age of Florence, at the apex of the Renaissance´s artistic achievements. Lorenzo de´ Medici, commonly referred to as Lorenzo the Magnificent, was groomed both intellectually and politically to rule Venice, and he took the reins of power at just 20 years old. 1.

Isabella and Ferdinand of Spain, given the title the "most Catholic monarchs" by the Pope during their reign over Spain, are often blamed for some of the greatest atrocities in history. Remembered primarily for commissioning Christopher Columbus´s historical voyage to the New World in 1492, they have been assigned blame for the results of the Spanish Conquest, particularly the catastrophes that befell the Native Americans of the New World. But their reign also had profound influences on the European continent, including the barbarity of the Spanish Inquisition and the expulsion of the Jews from Spain. However, while the modern world finds it hard to look favorably on Ferdinand and Isabella, in their own time they were well-respected, admired, and even presented as a model for other monarchs. 1.

´´If people knew how hard I had to work to gain my mastery, it would not seem so wonderful at all.´´ (Michelangelo) A lot of ink has been spilled covering the lives of history´s most influential figures, but how much of the forest is lost for the trees? When historians are asked to pick a point in history when Western civilization was transformed and guided down the path to modernity, most of them point to the Renaissance.

It´s possible that Michelangelo is the most famous artist in history, but it´s also possible that he´s an underrated artist. The vast influence of his career is reflected by the fact that he is not only known for his own art but has also come to embody an entire epoch of Western art. Along with Leonardo da Vinci, there are no other artists who so fully capture the spirit of scientific and artistic discovery that characterized art during the late 15th and early 16th centuries. 1.

If Florence is receiving its due credit, much of it belongs to the Medici family, a Florentine dynasty that ruled at the height of the Renaissance. The dynasty held such influence that some of its family members even became popes. Of all the fields that were advanced during the Renaissance, the period´s most famous works were works of art, including iconic paintings, like Leonardo´s Mona Lisa, and timeless sculptures, like Michelangelo´s David. It is fitting that both Leonardo and Michelangelo were at times members of Lorenzo de Medici´s court. The famous leader, who also considered himself an artist and poet, became known for securing commissions for the most famous artists of the age, including the aforementioned legends Piero and Antonio del Pollaiuolo, Andrea del Verrocchio, Sandro Botticelli, and Domenico Ghirlandaio. (When Lorenzo de Medici died in April 1492, he was buried in a chapel designed by Michelangelo.) As a result, Florence remains one of Europe´s favorite tourist spots. 1. Language: English.

Between 1348 and 1715, western Europe was fraught with turmoil, beset by the Black Plague, numerous and bitter religious wars, and frequent political revolutions and upheavals. Yet the Europe that emerged from this was vastly different from the Europe that entered it. By the start of the 18th century, Europe had been revitalized and reborn in a radical break with the past that would have untold ramifications for human civilization. This comprehensive series of 48 lectures by an award-winning teacher and scholar sheds new light on this critical period by exploring the political, social, cultural, and economic revolutions that transformed Europe between the arrival of the Black Death in the 14th century to the onset of the Enlightenment in the 18th century. It explains how these startling changes came about; the social, economic, and political factors that helped steer Europe away from the Middle Ages and into the modern world; the kinds of patterns we can see during this time; and how these centuries were critical to the entire narrative of history and have contributed to the Western world we know today. Professor Fix covers a remarkable breadth of subjects relating to European history from 1348 to 1715. While religion, politics, wars, and economics dominate this period, he also pays close attention to art, exploration, science, and technology. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Professor Andrew C. Fix.

My lady, Fiammetta Bianchini, was plucking her eyebrows and biting color into her lips when the unthinkable happened and the Holy Roman Emperor´s army blew a hole in the wall of God´s eternal city, letting in a flood of half-starved, half-crazed troops bent on pillage and punishment.Thus begins In the Company of the Courtesan, Sarah Dunant´s epic novel of life in Renaissance Italy. Escaping the sack of Rome in 1527, with their stomachs churning on the jewels they have swallowed, the courtesan Fiammetta and her dwarf companion, Bucino, head for Venice, the shimmering city born out of water to become a miracle of east-west trade: rich and rancid, pious and profitable, beautiful and squalid.With a mix of courage and cunning they infiltrate Venetian society. Together they make the perfect partnership: the sharp-tongued, sharp-witted dwarf, and his vibrant mistress, trained from birth to charm, entertain, and satisfy men who have the money to support her.Yet as their fortunes rise, this perfect partnership comes under threat, from the searing passion of a lover who wants more than his allotted nights to the attentions of an admiring Turk in search of human novelties for his sultan´s court. But Fiammetta and Bucino´s greatest challenge comes from a young crippled woman, a blind healer who insinuates herself into their lives and hearts with devastating consequences for them all.A story of desire and deception, sin and religion, loyalty and friendship, In the Company of the Courtesan paints a portrait of one of the world´s greatest cities at its most potent moment in history: It is a picture that remains vivid long after the last word. 1.
