Renaissance: here is a word medievalists don’t like very much. This trend was born in Italy in the course of the fourteenth century and spread in Europe over the following centuries. What shape did it take in the Kingdom of France? Did the Renaissance mark a break with the medieval time? We will try to answer these questions in this Cafe Histoire.
