PRODUCT SUMMARY


What was the Renaissance? How did it begin and why? A History of the Renaissance answers these questions and more as it investigates the driving forces behind this brilliant period of artistic and scientific achievement. Discover how humanists like Petrarch pioneered the rediscovery of ancient Greek and Roman culture and ideas, sparking an explosion of creativity and innovation. Changes abounded not only in the arts and sciences, but also in politics and religion. Learn more about the lasting implications of Renaissance monarchs’ attempts to strengthen and unify their nations, along with Martin Luther’s quest to reform the church. Part of the multivolume The Renaissance for Students DVD Series. A Teacher's Guides is included and available online.


EDITORIAL REVIEWS

"...[a] well-produced interesting series...Technical quality is outstanding, with visuals that include European location footage, maps, reenactments (with narrated quotes from Renaissance figures), and still shots of Renaissance art and architecture. Audio is clear, with a background of period music...a very good choice for any library that needs curricular materials on this era."- School Library Journal (Jan 2004)

"These programs make good use of reenactments and art prints, and helpful captions list new vocabulary words. Thoughtfully organized with a modern twist."- Booklist (Jan 1 & 15, 2004)
