Title: Renaissance


1
Renaissance
2
  • I. The Renaissance was the period that followed
    (brought Europe out of) the Middle Ages. It was a
    time of renewed interest in things of this world.
  • A. Human beings and their conditions
  • B. Education, art, literature, and science
  • C. Approximately 1300 - 1600

3
  • II. The Renaissance started in Italy where wealth
    from trade supported art learning.
  • A. Here also modern capitalism was born. Private
    individuals or companies, not the government,
    owned businesses. The main goal is profit.
  • B. Republican government arose in most cities.
    Citizens participated.

4
  • III. Niccolo Machiavelli (1469-1527), in The
    Prince (1513) said, basically, one must do
    whatever one must do to get and stay in power. If
    it works, it is the "right" thing to do. Forget
    ideals lie, cheat, even murder if you must. A
    stable state is needed.

5
  • IV. Humanism, a system of thought and action
    concerned with human interests and values, was
    the dominant movement of the Renaissance.
  • A. Human beings have dignity and intelligence.
  • B. They (we) can change the world and make it
    a better place for all.

6
  • V. The ideal so-called Renaissance man was
    successful in business, well-mannered, educated,
    athletic, and brave.
  • A. The goal of education became making people
    well-rounded.
  • B. Religion remained important, but the
    authority and some practices of the church
    began to be questioned.

7
Gutenberg Bible
  • C. The Gutenberg Bible, named for the craftsman
    and inventor of printing by use of moveable type,
    Johannes Gutenberg, was completed in 1455 at
    Mainz, Germany. The three-volume Latin text
    arguably represents the greatest single
    innovation in the history of communication
    technology, as well as a style of printing that
    existed almost unaltered until the twentieth
    century. Gutenbergs invention and the dispersion
    of relatively cheap printed materials ultimately
    stimulated enormous changesocial, political,
    economic, and religious. Some forty perfect
    vellum copies of Gutenbergs masterpiece of
    technological advancement still exist in the
    world.

8
  • VI. Some brilliant people lived during this
    time.

  • B. Michelangelo Buonaroti (1475-1564) painted
    (the Sistine Chapel ceiling), sculptured (David),
    designed buildings, and wrote poetry.

11
  • C. Desiderius Erasmus (1469?-1536), a priest who
    wrote books, The Praise of Folly 1509, condemned
    ignorance and superstition. He believed education
    could lead to more perfect societies.

13
