How Did The Renaissance Change The World?
Transcript of How Did The Renaissance Change The World?
The Renaissance not only changed Europe but the whole world. The introduction of humanistic ideas brought out questioning facts for the first time in history. This was caused not only by art, such as mannerism, but people would begin to relate to society.
The first flush toilet was invented in 1596 by John Harrington. Two-hundred years later, the toilet was reinvented by Alexander Cummings. These are used every millisecond in the world and are very helpful and hygienic. By 1890, the public began to be aware of the infectious diseases carried by improperly disposed urine/feces.Names used are: lavatory, a bog, a pot, a loo, a john, a water closet (abbreviated "W.C."), or simply "toilet".
Eyeglasses were invented in 1000 AD roughly although there are no clear records available of who made them. It was not until the 15th century that glasses for conditions like hyperopia, myopia and presbyopia were made. Glasses have helped people today by correcting bad vision and have also added to the fashion industry with frames.
It was a period that lead to development of art, literature, and culture. Today these three are very important in places such as Mexico for their traditional festivals, The Guggenheim where inspiration is made, and the works of Shakespeare which are often referred in English and writing.
Wallpaper was one of the greatest invention in Renaissance history. The first paper mill was set up in England in 1496. With the availability of paper, many different designs and patterns of wallpapers were developed. Today, wallpaper is used to accomplish a hard stencil without paint and to add design and uniqueness to an object.
Mechanical clocks were introduced in the 14th century. Over time with technology, they have improved and become more advanced. Mechanical clocks are used today for time management either for work, school, gatherings, reunions etc.
Q= How would life be today if we didn't know what time it was?
The renaissance caused people to have a more scientific view of the world. Instead of relying on superstitions or religion, people began to expand their minds and rely more on science to explain perspectives. This was entirely important because of growth in knowledge.
Jean-Baptiste Denys discovered blood transfusion in the year 1625. Blood transfusion, although gross, saves lives. It helps blood loss victims regain the healthy amount after a transfusion and is used all around. During the Renaissance, it was used often to regain lives affected by diseases such as AIDS.
Weird enough, the Mona Lisa was an inspiring painting made by Leonardo DaVinci between 1503-1506. The painting showed character and depth and confusing emotion that could not be explained. People were soon un-knowingly forced into thinking harder and more complicated and also having a different lifestyle.
