The Italian Renaissance

Hosted by Dr. Charles Doherty

Explore the Greco-Roman world’s revival during the Italian Renaissance with our Viking Resident Historian, Charles Doherty, and examine the works of 15th- and 16th-century artists and thinkers. As a bridge between the Middle Ages and the Age of Enlightenment, the era of the Italian Renaissance ushered in the rise of humanism and gave birth to a cultural and artistic explosion. Along with the further development of the arts and humanities, this era also saw an expansion of the world through greater knowledge and exploration, and still serves as an inspiration for the nearly unparalleled achievements that took place during this time.
