Francesco Petrarca
b. 7-20-1304; Arezzo, Tuscany, Italy
d. 7-19-1374

Petrarch, called the “father of humanism”, was a priest for a few years, and one of the earliest Renaissance scholars and poets. In 1341 he became the first poet laureate since antiquity, hence Petrarch is often portrayed crowned with a laural wreath.

Petrarch is also considered one of the earliest tourists in that he traveled for pleasure. In 1336 he had a “peak experience” in his climb of Mont Ventoux in southern France; he said “[W]e look about us for what is to be found only within. .... How many times, think you, did I turn back that day, to glance at the summit of the mountain which seemed scarcely a cubit high compared with the range of human contemplation ... ”. Jungian analyst James Hillman called Petrarch's rediscovery of the inner world the beginning of the Renaissance.

Petrarch's muse was Laura whom he adored from afar, and inspired his most famous works.

Petrarch, also considered an historian, is credited with coining the phrase “Dark Ages” to describe the dismal quality of the era preceding his own. He was also in correspondense with Giovanni Boccaccio.
