The aim of this entry is to provide a definition for Renaissance antiquarianism as a cultural phenomenon that influenced the way the past was interpreted between the fourteenth and seventeenth centuries. This cultural pathway represented a methodological perspective which involved the cross-referencing of heterogeneous sources, strongly linked to mankind’s perception of time, and which helped to shape historical consciousness. The focus then turns to the history of the phenomenon and an explanation of its methodology.
