From the Paper:

"In conclusion, the baroque era offers various styles of painting that are unified in their reality, details, and the most important aspect of the era: humanism. The underlying reality of life after the medieval period showed signs of the classical revival of Platonic thought and realness, which was previously dominated by the mythic sensibilities of the 16th century and earlier. These three aspects of baroque painting and history define the historical revival of classical thought in this period of European history."
