‘Antiquity and its Interpreters’ examines how the physical and textual remains of the ancient Romans were viewed and received by writers, artists, and cultural makers of early modern Italy. This volume reconsiders the complex relationship between the two cultures, in light of recent scholarship in the field a new appreciation and awareness of the act of history writing itself. The case studies analyze specific texts, the archaeological projects that made ‘antiquity’ available, the revival of art history and theory, and the appropriation of antiquities to serve social ideologies, among other topics. Demonstrating that the antique model was itself an artful contruct, Antiquity and its Interpretors shows that the originality of Renaissance culture owed as much to ignorance about antiquity as to an understanding of it. It also provides a synthesis of seminal work that recognizes the reciprocal relationship of the Renaissance to Antiquity.
