THE RENAISSANCE IN THE NORTH the late start!
  • Northern Europe began the Renaissance nearly 100
    years after Italy because they still suffered
    from the Black Death and had not experienced the
    same economic growth -- until the 1400s!

Where it began in the North
  • The Northern Renaissance began in a region called
    Flanders where there were lots of prosperous
    cities. (Present-day France, Belgium and
    Netherlands.
  • It then spread into the remainder of France,
    Spain, Germany and England.

    printing press with movable type
  • Why was this a BIG DEAL?

Northern Humanists and Writers

    the classics.
  • Writing had been in Latin -- began writing in
    everyday language (the vernacular)
  • What affect would this have?

35
Erasmus
  • A Priest and Humanist
  • Used knowledge of languages and produced a new
    edition of the Bible
  • He called for a translation of the Bible into the
    vernacular
  • Why was this a big deal?
