Transcript of The Renaissance

The Renaissance
The Renaissance means 'rebirth' -> of what?

Renewed interest in the culture of ancient Greece and Rome

Time of political, social, economic, and cultural creativity and curiosity

Florence (Italy) was the center

Since Florence was a port city and center of trade, a wealthy merchant class developed here and throughout Italy

Many of these wealthy merchants became
- Financial supporter of the arts

Wanted to beautify the city

Where and Why?

- Intellectual movement based on human/worldly matters rather than divine

Humanist beliefs stress the value of human beings and seek rational ways of solving human problems

Most art is focused on human characteristics, showing emotions

Today the term '
Renaissance Person'
is used to describe someone who has wide interests and is an expert in several areas
