Abstract

Deliberation about the cultural meaning of Rafael´s Sanzio (1483- 1520) “Athene´s School” (1508), as a demonstration of the apparent contradictions of the renaissance aesthetic, between the flow of individual actions and Christian condition, and his political deliberation. Rafael offers, at the same time, an overestimation of history and a radical affirmation of the tradition that the Renaissance express in the dualism created by the values offered by Christianity- one dimension extremely universal- in relation with human needs generated by the Greco- Roman culture (ideal and noble with a political sense as the coexistence base, the practical dimension of wisdom and politics as mimicry).
