In an age of instant gratification, transferring cognition to immediate utilization of the internet (as in Google) to avoid research in a library, and the preoccupation with social media outpacing educational ventures, this fine band of folks take learning in hand and condense history to digestible portions – without omitting facts or significant aspects. The idea is sound, the need is important to recognize. After surveying the histories of THE ASSYRIAN EMPIRE and THE VIKINGS, the authors now condense the dramatic RENAISSANCE. The Introduction sets the goal – ‘The Renaissance may be symbolically represented by an explosion. After the fall of the Roman Empire in 476 BC, the world fell asleep in terms of understanding themselves in the context of the world in which it existed. A rigid adherence to a caste-based feudal system forced people to bury their heads and their minds into the mud of meaninglessness. Then some enlightened people re-read the ancient classics and philosophies. They saw in those great beauty, and found applications for that beauty during the times in which they lived. The Renaissance took place during the 14th -17th Centuries. It brought with it a resurrection of the classics, but it was much more than that. Little by little, people realized that they, too, were a part of creation and could contribute to its elevation.’ What follows is an excellent overview of the patronage by the Medici’s, artists (Michelangelo, da Vinci, Holbein, Bernini), architects, mathematicians, sculptors, scientists, authors, astronomers, philosophers, the invention of the printing press, playwrights (especially Shakespeare!), the Reformation - all discussed with authority and with concern for the reader’s ability to grasp the connections. ‘Humanity found hope and happiness from a world made dark by ignorance.’ The language is conversational and that makes this compacted history readily understood and provides a solid resource of knowledge that might be overlooked in today’s environment. We learn from history, and therefore we must study history. History Compacted makes this immediately available. Recommended.

    This ebook, about the Renaissance, talks about the various expressions of the era, particularly art and architecture. I really cannot imagine a book talking about this very important change in human history without some photos, to show the new artistry. Yet, there were none, except the cover. There were some interesting things that I learned in this brief book. Before the Renaissance, life was dictated by a caste-system along feudal lines. Essentially, a person was born, worked, and died. Period. This ebook, about the Renaissance, talks about the various expressions of the era, particularly art and architecture. I really cannot imagine a book talking about this very important change in human history without some photos, to show the new artistry. Yet, there were none, except the cover. There were some interesting things that I learned in this brief book. Before the Renaissance, life was dictated by a caste-system along feudal lines. Essentially, a person was born, worked, and died. Period. Life was brief and colorless. The 'Baroque period' (highly decorated buildings with ornate details), of the later Renaissance years, was a reaction to the grim, plainness of the Protestant Reformation (from the earlier Renaissance). In ancient times, when they did not understand a phenomenon, they created myths and legends about it. During the early Renaissance, thinkers and scientists started to question everything and looked for scientific answers, a way of proving their ideas (with science or mathematics). Nicolaus Copernicus lived in Northern Poland, which was called Prussia at the time. Although he and Galileo believed in the same things solarly-speaking, Copernicus was not subjected to the Inquisition, as Galileo was. The study of science caused the bonds between the populace and the Church to be strained. The Church believed the Bible was correct and complete, while science searched for logic and reason to explain phenomena. Once Guttenburg made Bibles available to the population at large, people started to think in new ways about God. This also strained their relationship with the Church. With the invention of the astrolabe (tool mariners use), they could tell time. Petrarch, an Italian priest, taught people of the Renaissance that there was no contradiction between the secular life and one's spiritual life. 3.5 stars
