CULTURAL CHANGES IN LATER SIXTEENTH - CENTURY ITALY THE PARTICULAR VIEW OF CATHOLICISM ON ARCHITECTURE OF CLASSICAL ANTIQUITY AND EARLY CHRISTIANITY ...
This volume deals with similarities and correspondences between Late Antiquity (c. 300-600 AD) and the Renaissance (roughly after c. 1350). In both periods, the presence of two competing forces, the ancient classical and the Christian traditions, led to a constant dynamic of thought and creativity. The ten essays in this volume present new views on these issues in the fields of political philosophy, theology, law, literature, art, and architecture.
