This brief textbook is suitable for courses on the Renaissance, the Renaissance and Reformation, and Renaissance Art. It can also be used for Italian Studies courses and courses in the Humanities.

The book follows an interdisciplinary approach and covers the origins of the Italian Renaissance through the Baroque period. It is comprised of fifteen chapters, organized chronologically, along with an introduction and conclusion. As the Renaissance is central to the teaching of Western Civilization courses, often functioning as a bridge between first and second semesters, this book will help provide background to the social, cultural, and political scene in Italy between the Medieval and Modern eras.
