The renaissance really started off when people started looking back at the greek and Roman Ideas. People really started to learn, some from the books of old-time philosophers and some from the new experiments that started up. People learned about anatomy, physics and astronomy.
Religion was a big part of the renaissance. Almost everybody followed a religion, if you didn't you might be killed. If someone would have gone against the church they would have faced the consequences. This stopped a lot of philosophers and scientists
Throughout the renaissance people thought of tons of new inventions, one of the great creators was Leonardo da Vinci, he thought of tons of ideas like the submarine and gliders. All these inventions really improved the lives of people.
The social structure of the renaissance was divided into 3 distinct classes. Servants, civilians, and rich. The servants would normally be forced to work for the rich people without pay or with very little. While the civilians normally worked for themselves with regular jobs or were employed with good pay.
The Silk Road
The silkroad ran from Japan all the way to Italy, it was a major trade network that helped spread art, disease, culture, and inventions.
The servants are the lowest of classes getting only enough to live
The middle class is mainly merchants who have money from their work but are not sitting on a fortune.
