Transcript of 4.09 Module Project
Italy around the year 1350, and for the next three
centuries Renaissance innovations in art, architecture,
science, and religion spread slowly across the European
continent. During the Renaissance, London contributed through leadership, architecture, and literature. London's leader during the renaissance era was Queen Elizabeth 1 . She encouraged England into the Renaissance. William Shakespeare was one of London's greatest Renaissance men who was highly interested in literature such as plays. London was not only part of the Renaissance but also part of the English and Protestant Reformation. Another Renaissance center was Venice, the port city on the Adriatic Sea. Influenced by Byzantine as well as european culture, Venice was known for its artistic achievements. Just as with Florence, Venice was a Republic during the Renaissance. Venice had the economy to support art and artists. The Anglican Reformation was also a big part of Venice. The Counter Reformation movement provided a yet greater impulse for growth. The Protestant Reform and Counter Reformation provided a stronger impulse for urban transformation of Rome. The Renaissance was another influence on Rome. It was greatly honored and used for architecture like the Colosseum. Florence was the birthplace of the Renaissance because of the Medici Family. Florence was one of the wealthiest areas in Italy during the Renaissance.Many have emphasized the role played by the Medici family in patronizing and stimulating the arts. Lorenzo de' Medici devoted huge sums to commissioning works from Florence's leading artists, including Leonardo da Vinci, Sandro Botticelli, and Michelangelo Buonarroti. Like all the other Italian cities, Florence was also part of the Reformation. Paris had played a small role in the Reformation that had taken place but had played a major part in European Exploration because of its location. The Renaissance in Paris was a cultural revival during the 16th and 17th Centuries. It actually started with the Italian Renaissance, discovered by the French kings while on expeditions to Italy.The French Renaissance was partly born in Paris. It was mainly because of its culture and art.
