5 Causes and Effects of the Renaissance.
4th Cause: Start location of Renaissance
The Renaissance was a rebirth that occurred throughout most of Europe. However, the changes that we associate with the Renaissance first occurred in the Italian city of Florence and continued to be more pervasive there than anywhere else. The city's economy and its writers, painters, architects, and philosophers all made Florence a model of Renaissance culture
2nd Effect: People started to do things with the press
This is very big because, now that the press is invented, people can make production very smooth and easier than doing it with out the press.
1st Cause: Printing Press
One cause for the Renaissance was the printing press. People before were making paper, or books by hand and you only have one shot at it. With the printing press, you can do it much easier and its more efficient.
2nd cause: Martin Luther
Martin Luther and the 95 theses. This was a HUGE cause in the Renaissance. He made 95 theses in vernacular ( own language ) because the Catholic church can only read it in its vernacular. Then it got out of hand and people changed it to LATIN.
5th Cause: Humanism
The great intellectual movement of Renaissance Italy was humanism. The humanists believed that the Greek and Latin classics contained both all the lessons one needed to lead a moral and effective life and the best models for a powerful Latin style.
1st Effect: Church was doing things incorrect
Criticism of the Catholic Church includes observations made about the current or historical Catholic Church, in its actions, teachings, omissions, structure, or nature. Theological disagreements are covered on a denominational basis. Criticisms may regard the concepts of papal primacy and supremacy, or aspects of church structure, governance, and particular practices. Since the Catholic Church is the largest Christian church representing over half of all Christians[1] and one sixth of the world's population,[2] these criticisms may not necessarily represent the majority view of all Christians and non-Christians
3rd Cause: Medici family.
The Medici family, also known as the House of Medici, first attained wealth and political power in Florence in the 13th century through its success in commerce and banking. Beginning in 1434 with the rise to power of Cosimo de’ Medici (or Cosimo the Elder), the family’s support of the arts and humanities made Florence into the cradle of the Renaissance, a cultural flowering rivaled only by that of ancient Greece.
3rd effect: People started trade
This is also a effect on the Renaissance because people needed to trade and how could you not trade without any people in a busy city. So they usually traded in Florunce , Italy.
4th Effect: Medici Family helped with Feuds.
The Medici weren't the only famous family of the Italian Renaissance. Their fame stemmed as much from their longevity as from their achievements. Their rivals burned just as bright - they just didn't last as long. When Italy was in debt, they helped pay off the feuds.
5th effect: People started caring
When people started caring about humanism, people cared about each other. They still would care for themselfs. But usually they would care for others because of humanism.
