Was the Renaissance Reality or Myth

Overview: Renaissance historian Peter Burke has argued that the Renaissance was not really the dawn of a new era. In fact, he claimed in his article  The Myth of the Renaissance that the High Middle Ages experienced a series of renascences  that shaped modern Western culture.
