MoreExcerpt from The Renaissance the Protestant Revolution and the Catholic Reformation in Continental EuropeWe shall begin the study of the Renaissance with the last quarter of the thirteenth century.

Not that the Middle Ages ended at this time and that then the Renaissance, in all it aspects, began. One cannot say when the Middle Ages gave place to the Renaissance. Indeed, in some respects, the Middle Ages are not over yet. They still subsist, stealing in silent currents along the subterranean ways of the world.

It is impossible to date the bounds of an era with any degree of accuracy, Eras are not initiated with single dramatic events. In the great development of civilization there is nothing sudden, but rather is the change like that which takes place in a forest - birth, growth, and death go on almost unnoticed side by side.

There are always many foreshadowings of any intellectual movement. So, one must not expect to find the Renaissance, or any other important era, inaugurated by a striking event or a violent revolution.. Only very gradually did the new dispensation take form and shape. It was not announced to a startled world by the blast of a sudden trumpet.Let us first of all make a brief survey of the Europe of that day from Sicily to Scotland, and from Cape Finisterre to the frontiers of Muscovy.

At the dawn of the Renaissance, Christendom could claim only a small part of the world. The Mohammedan conquests had greatly diminished its extent since the dawn of seventh century. Christianity, as the ruling power, had been expelled from her most glorious seats - from Palestine, Syria, Asia Minor, Egypt, North Africa, and from a considerable part of the Spanish peninsula.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
