Here she describes the Italian Renaissance as a time when people began to celebrate the beauty of the human body, the dignity of worldly human life, and the potential of people to reach for new cultural accomplishments – while remaining mindful of the divinity within, as expressed in the art and insights of the high middle ages. Hermeticism and kabbalah were part of this awakening that was largely stimulated by a growing awareness of ancient cultures.
