Summary
  • "The Renaissance movement known as humanism eventually spread from Italy through all of western Europe, transforming early modern culture in ways that are still being felt and debated. Central to these debates - and to this book - is the question of whether (and how) the humanist movement contributed to the secularization of Western cultural traditions at the end of the Middle Ages. A preeminent scholar of Italian humanism, Riccardo Fubini approaches this question in a new way - by redefining the problem of secularization more carefully to show how humanists can at once be secularizers and religious thinkers. The resuIt is a provocative vision of the humanist movement."
  • "Humanism and Secularization offers a nuanced account of humanists contesting medieval ideas about authority not in order to reject Christianity or even orthodoxy, but to claim for themselves the right to define what it meant to be a Christian. Fubini analyzes key texts by major humanists - such as Petrarch, Poggio, and Valla - from the first century of the movement."--Jacket
