Godfathers of the Renaissance

Are you a history and art buff? Then I have a lovely surprise for you.  Part of PBS’s Empire Series, The Medici: Godfathers of the Renaissance is a lovely documentary which tells the story of how the Renaissance was born in 14th century Europe. The Renaissance which means rebirth in French was a period of cultural, artistic, scientific, political and religious rebirth.
And because I just love crowding my own head with lots of tidbits of information I think you should check these out too:
Leonardo da Vinci
Galileo Galilei
Niccolò Machiavelli (also download The Prince)
Filippo Brunelleschi
Sandro Botticelli

You can also watch the rest of the episodes on YouTube in HDTV.
