He was a polish astronomer and mathematician. Nicolaus also published his theory that the Sun is near the center of the universe, not the Earth.
Leonardo da Vinci was an
Italian Renaissance polymath:
painter, sculptor, architect,musician, mathematician, engineer, inventor,
anatomist, geologist, cartographer,
botanist, and writer. His genius, perhaps more than that of any other figure, epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal.Leonardo has often been described as the archetype of the Renaissance Man, a man of "unquenchable curiosity" and "feverishly inventive imagination".

The Renaissance was a cultural movement that spanned the period roughly from the 14th to the 17th century, beginning in Italy in the Late Middle Ages and later spreading to the rest of Europe.
The Renaissance changed how people thought, and the new thinking gave us many of the freedoms we have today.

The Renaissance is important because it is like a bridge, between medieval thinking and early modern thinking. Important changes they made changed the ways we look at things now is Catholic Church (Protestant Reformation), the invention of the printing press and an increase in travel and trade(by sailing).This altered the way Europeans viewed God and the world and how the individual human think. The Protestants still believed in God but also believed that the Catholic Church. Thinking more opened and all sorts of possibilities. The printing press made individual believer have more free ways from the constraints of a corrupt and dominating movable type allowed for more ideas to be spread much faster than ever before. It of course is nothing like today's tech, but having two or three copies of something means two or three times as many people will be exposed to an idea. Europeans were leaving the continent in search of gold, goods and etc. The world was larger than it had ever been before.
