Croatia and Europe 2 - Croatia in the Late Middle Ages and the Renaissance (A Cultural Survey.). This is the English edition of the second volume of a monumental five-volume survey undertaken by the Croatian Academy of Arts and Sciences. The series will provide the English-speaking world, experts and general readers alike, with a full, authoritative account of the rich, but for non-Croats very incompletely known, history of Croatian culture from the earliest times to the present. It is testimony to Croatias national self-confidence that such an ambitious undertaking was initiated at a time when the country was still struggling to overcome the traumas associated with regaining its independent statehood after nearly nine centuries. It bears witness to the extraordinary range and remarkable erudition of Croatias scholars that the enterprise is now being brought so magnificently to fruition. The authors scrupulously and carefully assemble their evidence and deliver their conclusions on every important aspect - law, linguistics, illuminated manuscripts, printing, poetry, painting, sculpture, churches, fortification, town planning, medicine, science, philosophy, music and even economics. There are many enjoyable ways to gain an insight into the small but ancient Croatian nations identity. But few are more rewarding than to investigate Croatias cultural treasures through the pages of this book.
