Summary: "Chronicling the rediscovery of classical thought during the Renaissance, this program illustrates the intellectual awakening of the era--as well as its many cruelties--through its literature. The program provides historical context for Machiavelli's The Prince, Erasmus's Education of a Christian Prince, and Sir Thomas More's Utopia; Cervantes' Don Quixote; and Elizabethan literature, especially Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice. It also shows how Gutenberg's printing press and the rise of literacy and widespread communication strengthened the Protestant Reformation. Viewers learn about the rise of the new mercantile economy and how it led to new concentrations of power.
