Based on the Dartmouth Medal--winning Encyclopedia of the Renaissance (2000), this set has been prepared especially for non-specialists, focusing on the Renaissance-era topics most studied in high school: world history, art, literature, economics, and science curriculum. Organized alphabetically, this illustrated, full-color set includes entries on a range of topics, including: Florence, Galileo, Heraldry, Humanism, Medici family, Opera, Piracy, Rhetoric, Shakespeare, Spanish Armada, Leonardo da Vinci, and many others. Features include a master chronology with topical timelines; a bibliography with age-appropriate further reading sources; and a comprehensive index.
