Chapter Summary

This is the conclusory chapter of the book, which highlights the importance of the evolution of humanist theology, as a response to contemporary tensions in the religious and political spheres, for an understanding of Florentine humanism and its relations to religion and politics in the final decades of the fifteenth century. Humanist theology should be seen as the culmination of a tendency to bring pagan classical texts and Scriptures into relation with one another. The inseparability of the spiritual and political crises, and consequently the inseparability of their solutions in humanist theology, has been demonstrated in the book analysing a variety of sources in which religious terminology and imagery appear in a political context and in which political terminology and imagery appear in a religious context.

Keywords:Florentine humanism; humanist theology; political crises
