The Italian Renaissance is rightly regarded as the cradle of modern Europe. An unprecedentedly rational approach to reality had grown up on the Apennine pensinsula, and a new, classically inspired world view was manifesting itself in such fields as philosophy, history and politics. The learned humanism of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries ushered in a different perspective on man as a confident individual with a critical relationship to the world, God, and himself.
