Between the first scourge, the Black Death of 1348, and the 1420s, Italy’s population had declined by one-third. In such crisis conditions, Italian regimes of every category were threatened by perils internal and external. These governments were built upon very shaky foundations. They lacked the patina of legitimacy enjoyed by the heads of sacralized monarchies in northern Europe, and they could never depend upon the solid allegiance of their subjects.

That radical transformation occurred (so Burckhardt argued) in the course of the fourteenth century, though the seeds of this revolution had been sown earlier, in the second half of the thirteenth century. The medieval world, against which Burckhardt juxtaposed the Renaissance, was characterized by an agrarian economy, by a society that was hierarchical and feudal, by a political system that was dominated by kings with sacral power, and above all, by a culture that was profoundly and pervasively Christian and other-worldly.
