Man Also Rose

Gary Hull

Presented at: Lyceum Euro 1999

Date: Sep 24, 1999

The Renaissance was not only the rebirth of reason-it was also the rebirth of ancient Greece's glorious man-worship. In this lecture, we will see how the Dark Ages concept of man's metaphysical nature––as captured by Augustine's view that man is "crooked and sordid, bespotted and ulcerous"––transformed into the Renaissance conviction that man is "worthy of all admiration, a great miracle and a truly marvelous creature." This lecture also explains the dramatic effect that this uplifted view of man had on the development of Renaissance science and art
