Street Life in Renaissance Rome

With reference to the book “Street Life in Renaissance Rome”

 

Essay Question: In a 4 page double spaced paper using 4-5 sources from the book “Street Life in Renaissance Rome” please answer the following question: To what degree is there a “dark side” to the Renaissance?

 

Note from the Professor

The reading highlights many aspects of this brutal world-full of anti-semitism, casual violence, poverty and sexual exploitation. I would either focus the paper around 1 of these themes OR highlight sources that deal with each of these themes. For example I would argue that the era was full of anti-semitism, casual violence, poverty and sexual exploitation. Then I would describe each of these themes using evidence from 1-2 sources per paragraph that connect to these ideas.

OR highlight the religious violence for example-this including anti-semitism, killing in the name of religion, and new religious ideas brought about by Luther.
