The authors of this volume describe the struggle of Renaissance of humanism in early fifteenth-century Italy to its crisis and decline at the end of the century, with a look forward to developments in the first decades after 1500. Theologians strove throughout the century to discover in the renewal of their own science a means of counteracting the forces of division that were fragmenting the Church.

The multiple volumes that encompass this study bring theology out of its small circle of experts, and show it for what it is to all: a cultural expression of faith that is sensitive to the needs of the day and developed in close dialogue with other forms of the culture.
History of Theology will be published in multiple volumes. Translated from Italian, this scholarly work is carefully organized and annotated.
