The Renaissance which began in Italy in the fourteenth century was a period of great change in art culture and science The word Renaissance means Rebirth this is a perfect word to describe the period Many of the greatest artists in history such as Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci lived during this time period Renaissance scientists made many great discoveries and played a large part in a fair portion of our current knowledge about the natural world As well Renaissance thinkers changed the way people saw themselves and the world around them Renaissance society was very different from feudal society of the middle ages The Medieval world was built around the nearest manor and most everyday activities had to do with a manor or castle By the time of the Renaissance towns in southern Europe had grown greatly in size The wealthy people who lived in Renaissance society had more spare time and money than in the Middle Ages This meant they could spend more time studying new ideas and had more money to truly patronise the arts The medieval view of the world was a look at the bad side of things People thought of life as short and full of suffering There was very little medieval art that didnt have a religious theme and most art was made by hired artists for a church to teach people about there faith and encourage them to lead better lives so they could go to heaven The middle ages did not of course end abruptly Some people still clung on to the medieval view of the world but slowly this view ended almost completely During the Renaissance period people became tired of the world view in the Middle Ages To them the feudal period had been a period of inactivity and sluggish growth Instead Renaissance people admired the classical age and the great artists and thinkers of ancient Greece and Rome Much ancient art especially sculpture
