Usually portrayed as a period dominated by the extraordinary achievements of great men, leading scholar Margaret L.King recasts the Renaissance as a more complex cultural movement rooted in a unique urban society that was itself the product of many factors and interactions, such as commerce, papal and imperial ambitions, artistic patronage, scientific discovery, aristocratic and popular violence, legal precedents, peasant migrations, famine, plague, invasion, and other social factors. Together with literary and artistic achievements, therefore, today’s Renaissance history includes the study of power, wealth, gender, class, honour, shame, ritual, and other categories of historical investigation opened up in recent years. Incorporating the most recent research, Professor King traces the diffusion of the Renaissance from Italy to the rest of Europe.
