Change Over Time By: Cesar Cortes-Reyes

What was the change?

The term Renaissance means rebirth, this Renaissance is the revival of art and learning. During this time the scholars looked down on art and literature of the Dark Ages, in preference they returned to the learning of the Greeks and the Romans. Humanism erupted during this time period due to the study of classical texts. Humanism was an intellectual movement that focused on human potential and achievements. Dante influenced the writing of this time by writing in Vernacular, their native language, instead of Latin. People then began to doubt the political and religious structures.
