collective discoveries of Christopher Columbus, Amerigo Vespucci, John
and Sebastian Cabot, and Giovanni da Verrazzano constitute a distinct
Italian Era of Discovery which laid the groundwork for all other voyages
which followed. The Italian discoverers deserve a place alongside the
well-known Humanists in the history of art, literature, philosophy, and
government by virtue of their research and accomplishments. The
explorers also made original contributions to the fields of science,
navigation and cartography. The world view of the Italian explorers
evolved to include the concept of a new world. They had to reevaluate
their cosmography and change the maps to reflect their new knowledge.
The concept of a New World was equally profound as that of a new age.
The most important contribution of the Italian explorers was not what
they found, but the change in thinking that took place when they tried
to explain their discoveries. This book has been read by those with an
interest in the Age of Discovery, Renaissance Humanism, and the history
of the New World. It has been used in university classes as required
reading in classes related to these topics.
