Renaissance: Perspective and birth of mathematical Infinity

Lorenzetti_Ambrogio_annunciation-_1344.

The birth of modern world in the Middle Age out of perspective in painting (Greeks did not have perspective) was due to innovations in Middle Age theology. The actuality of the infinite was born from Middle Age theology.
See Paolo Zellini, Breve Storia dell’Infinito, pgg.101-103;148-149

The best place where to learn all of this would be Panowski, Perspective als Symbolische Form (see this in Italian)
