Professor Kenneth Bartlett helps you appreciate the Italian Renaissance as the moment in history when culture reached a point that is still very much with us, in the way we live our modern lives and in the extant Renaissance cities of contemporary Italy. You will gain an understanding of the underlying social, political, and economic forces that made such exceptional art and culture possible. In this course, you will learn from two masters: Professor Bartlett himself, and the eminent 19th-century art historian Jacob Burckhardt, who created the scholarly model of cultural history through which the Renaissance is still widely studied today.

While the information presented was interesting, this was really a lecture about humanism during the Renaissance. There were few visuals to support the lecture; in fact, it could have been done solely as an audio course. For all the art work during this time period, this was a major disappointment. The professor was personable and spoke well, but it seemed like he was reading from a textbook.

I enjoyed this lecture series. The professor is not as witty as some others I have seen, but the suject matter was very interesting. I thought he did a good job putting things into a reasonable order, although there was some "back-and-forth". Excellent lecture on Machevelli.
