Under title:: Historiography; subtitle: Medieval and Middle Ages; sub-section: Periodization issues; first paragraph, 2rd sentence:

“Most scholars who work in fifth century Italian history, for instance, consider themselves Renaissance, while anyone working elsewhere in Europe during the early fifteenth century is considered a “mediaevalist.”

Question: fifth century scholars consider themselves Renaissance — “fifth century” does not match most other references, including the redirection to “Renaissance” which states: “The Renaissance is usually considered to have begun in the fourteenth century in Italy…”

Thank you, Rilla, for your feedback. Indeed “fifth century” appears to be a typo. It should be “fifteenth century.” Thank you again for taking the time to comment; that mistake will be corrected.
