In an age and country torn by war, plague, and social and religious ferment, the works of Giotto, Simone Martini, and their contemporaries brought the art of the Middle Ages to its apogee.  The writings of Dante, Petrarch and Boccaccio revolutionised literature, though the new awareness of historical change that they bequeathed ultimately brought the period to an end.
