Jacon Burckhardt: The Renaissance

I have had to order this book again, as I can’t find it anywhere on my shelves even tho’ I bought it 6 years ago…it’s a recommended  book on the darker side of the Renaissance

Burckhardt saw things very differently. The fascination of reading his book is its vision of Italy as the birthplace of modern individualism, political calculation, science and scepticism. In 1860 Burckhardt looked at Italy and saw the shock of the new, secreted in sleepy ruins.
