EXCERPT: BULLET POINTS ON RENAISSANCE
~The Renaissance occurred in Europe, from the 14th to the 17th centuries, beginning in Florence in the 14th century.
~It started as a cultural movement in Italy and then spread to the rest of Europe.
~Its basis was humanism coupled with classical Greek philosophy.
~Humanism defined: an outlook attaching importance to the human rather than the divine.
~The Renaissance came after the Black Death (plague), which occurred in Europe between 1348 and 1350.
~Italy was very badly hit by the plague.
~This constant chain of death could have advanced Humanism by the survivors wanting to concentrate more on their lives on Earth, rather than on spirituality and the afterlife.
~The Renaissance affected art, architecture, politics, science and literature.
~Art was improved by adopting linear perspective, providing a naturally real look to the art works. Light and shadow were used. da Vinci studied human anatomy for his art.
~Although this era used to be presented as a cultural "advance" from the Middle Ages, that view has eroded in recent times.
~Now the two eras are looked upon as a continuum with a thousand ties between them.
~The Renaissance contained great art works about Christianity.
~Catholic Church patronized many works of Renaissance art.
~Yet intellectuals of the Renaissance began to look at religion differently, which eventually led to the Protestant Reformation.
~The stories, whether religious or mythical, are essential to this art style. Most of these figures have stories attached to them, which are given in the presentation whenever feasible.
