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.

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. 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. 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.

The Renaissance spawned the use of the label ´´Renaissance man´´ to describe a person who is extremely talented in multiple fields, and no discussion of the Renaissance is complete without the original Renaissance man, Leonardo da Vinci. Indeed, if 100 people are asked to describe Leonardo in one word, they might give 100 answers. As the world´s most famous polymath and genius, Leonardo found time to be a painter, a sculptor, an architect, a musician, a scientist, a mathematician, an engineer, an inventor, an anatomist, a geologist, a cartographer, a botanist, and a writer. It would be hard to determine which field Leonardo had the greatest influence in. His Mona Lisa and The Last Supper are among the most famous paintings of all time, standing up against even Michelangelo´s work. But even if he was not the age´s greatest artist, Leonardo may have conducted his most influential work in other fields. His emphasis on the importance of nature would influence enlightened philosophers centuries later, and he sketched speculative designs for gadgets like helicopters that would take another four centuries to create. Leonardo´s vision and philosophy were made possible by his astounding work as a mathematician, an engineer, and a scientist. At a time when much of science was dictated by Church teachings, Leonardo studied geology and anatomy long before they truly even became scientific fields, and he used his incredible artistic abilities to sketch the famous Vitruvian Man, linking art and science together. Legends of the Renaissance: The Life and Legacy of Leonardo da Vinci chronicles Leonardo´s amazing life and work, analyzing the lasting legacy he left across the arts and sciences. 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.
