Below are suggested examples of Multiple Renaissances worth further exploration by students of world history:
Fatimid Egypt - Art and Science
Medieval Spain: The Experience of Toleration and Cosmopolitanism amid Fractious Politics of the Taifa Principalities
The Italian Renaissance and its Legacy
Northern Renaissance and The English Renaissance
For the Northern Renaissance and its aftermath, an especially instructive guide to interpretation are the paintings of the Flemish painters, Pieter Brueghel the Elder (1525-1569) and his sons Pieter Brueghel the Younger (1565-1636) and Jan Brueghel (1568-1625).
1. http://www.pieter-bruegel.com/ (In French, but has excellent notations on the parable paintings)
2. We'll examine Les Proverbes Flamands (1559) [Flemish Proverbs / Netherlandish Proverbs].
There is also a site that shows and highlights selected proverbs from the painting.
