Art Movements: Rennaisance

Introduction

The Renaissance was a period of rebirth and renewal in Italian culture, which began in Florence and spread throughout Europe. The Renaissance is sometimes called the ‘rebirth’ because it represented a revival of classical learning and culture after centuries of darkness. It occurred during the fourteenth through sixteenth centuries and had an enormous impact on Western civilization. This movement brought an end to the medieval period in Europe.

Northern Italy was ruled by the Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian

  • Maximilian I was elected Holy Roman Emperor in 1493. He was the son of Frederick III, who had been elected to the position in 1440–and he ruled Austria, Hungary and Bohemia. His reign also included parts of the Netherlands and Burgundy (which he inherited from his father).
  • The Northern Italian city-states were ruled by several dukes at this time; these leaders often fought each other for territory or power over their city-states. These wars would eventually lead up to one big war known as “the Italian Wars” which lasted from 1494 until 1559!

An important figure in the rise of humanism was Petrarch (1304-1374)

Petrarch, an Italian poet and scholar who lived in the 1400s and 1500s, was a humanist. A humanist studies the classical texts of ancient Greece and Rome, as well as their cultural traditions. They were interested in learning about these cultures because they felt that Italy had lost its way after the fall of Rome. Petrarch wrote both Latin poetry (like Virgil) and vernacular Italian poetry (like Dante). He also wrote letters to his friend Boccaccio about the importance of studying ancient literature; these letters were very influential for future generations of writers who wanted to learn how important it was for them to read classical authors like Cicero or Horace instead just focusing on newer works written by contemporaries only interested in writing about themselves instead!

He wrote in Latin but also used vernacular Italian. This made him popular and influential.
