Example text

Their testaments, their funerary chapels, their bequests to charity, their participation in liturgical ceremonies and religious processions, all testified to the power and relevance of their faith, which was a fundamental force in their lives. The Burckhardtian concept of Renaissance individualism has been one of the most influential themes in his analysis. He believed that the unique historical conditions in thirteenth- and fourteenth-century Italy had fostered the creation of a new type of man: free and independent, detached from the traditional social and psychological bonds of kinship and solidarity; above all, self-conscious,acutely aware of himself and his world, and capable of ordering and controlling his life.

And not only in Italy, but everywhere in Europe, new men were emerging to challenge the old elites, whether aristocratic or ecclesiastical. One can see this rising tide of new men at every social level and in every profession; for example, in the Roman papacy where in the fifteenth century a cluster of new men from new families were elected to the Holy See, several of them having humanist training. The rise of humanism as a cultural movement was thus due in significant part to the perception of its relevance to contemporary concerns, and to its special attraction to newly emerging elites.
