Topic: Francesco Petrarch

Order Description
Discuss how the work of Francesco Petrarch and Christine de Pisan embodies the values of Italian Humanism that we discussed in our class. Be sure to quote their texts in your discussion. If you like, feel free to add a discussion of a work of Renaissance art and show how it reflects the same intellectual values. NOTES: Values of Italian humanism (1330-1500) – stress on latin rhedric -> cicero – civitas -> civic virtue – stress on greco rman values – positive view of humanity (doesn not deny human sins) – stress on studias humanitates – grammar, rhedric, history, poetry, moral philosophy (human choices)
