The contributions of Machiavelli, Federigo da Montefeltro, Jan van Eyck, Botticelli, Michaelangelo, Columbus, and Magellan are examined in an era possessed by a passion for knowledge. THE RENAISSANCE AND THE NEW WORLD (30:00) The discovery of America challenged Europe's ideas and institutions as explorers, artists and thinkers surpassed previous limits.
