“[The humanists of Renaissance Italy] became influential because they knew what the ancients knew, because they tried to write as the ancients wrote, because they began to think, and soon to feel, as the ancients thought and felt” (Jacob Burckhardt, The Civilization of the Renaissance in Italy (1860), 148).

I could write about it, but I could not say it any better.
