He wrote the volumes "The Lives ..." in which he coined several words of modern usage: --rinascita --Rennaissance-- --concorronza -completion, which has a capitalist sense because artists competed for patronage --goth -became Gothic Architecture though Vasari meant it in a derogatory sense as goth=barbaric --Byzantine --as "eastern" Rome, which is named after an 8th Century BCC/BCE city on the site of what will become Constantinople Here is a good three page read for college students -which High Schoolers can use (like to impress their instructors)- on Byzantine Studies: --- http://www.oxfordhandbooks.com/view/10.1093/oxfordhb/9780199252466.001.0001/oxfordhb-9780199252466-e-001 ------within this article is a reference to Tainter's "The Collapse of Complex Societies" .
