2: The Renaissance | 1300-1650 | "Rebirth" | The Renaissance was a time of rebirth in Western Europe. This involved a reawakening of interest in several topics such as literature, art, government and everyday living of the public. | *1 | The culture of the Renaissance significantly changed the way those of Western Europe viewed themselves and the world around them. To this day, it continues to be considered a part of a larger Age of Religion. | "In order to forget my own time, I have constantly striven to place myself in spirit in other ages, and consequently I delighted in history..." Francesco Petrarch, Italian poet: (1304-1374)

4: Humanism | Who is Petrarch? | Humanism is an approach in study, philosophy, or practice that focuses on human values and concerns. | Writers and artists of the Renaissance used this term to distinguish their cultural program. There was an extreme importance of simply living with human dignity- thus, being a responsible, as well overall good person in hopes of developing a better life in society. | Humanism -derived from Latin term humanitas | = "good human" | Petrarch (1304-1374), was an Italian humanist. | Petrarch was highly interested in the recovery of classical languages/texts. He stated: "We frankly confess that we have been guided by thee, assisted by thy judgments." A completely new view of human nature/accomplishment was discovered in the Renaissance. A "Renaissance Man" was described as being one who excelled in many areas, above the ordinary. Those such as Leonardo da Vinci who painted, wrote, invented and excelled in mathematics, and Machiavelli who had a passion for writing philosophy in areas such as history and politics are those who displayed true Renaissance qualities. | *3
5: Christian Humanism | The belief in God had created an entirely new view of human nature. It was stated by the Italian philosopher, Giovanni Pico della Mirandola (1463-1494) that God created humans with thoughts of the ability to shape their own lives. Christian humanism valued the existence of life simply in relation with Christian faith. | "Man's discovery of himself and the world." | *4 | Mirandola portrayed humans as free agents who are capable of the best as well as the worst. Therefor, humanists felt that education was extremely important in teaching children at an early start. This would prepare those to be a responsible citizen in the future. From this, people felt devoted to both their social and political community because of their achievements.
6: The Medici Family | *5 | of FLORENCE, ITALY | The Medici Family was an Italian bourgeois family that ruled Florence and later Tuscany from 1430 to 1737. Through banking and commerce, the family acquired great wealth, and were possibly the richest family in all of Italy. At the end of the 13th century, their wealth increased when a member of the family served as a bearer in a high ceremonial office. | The families wealth continued to increase during the 14th century until the gonfaliere Salvestro de' Medici was banished due to his brutal set of conditions to the people in the revolt of the Ciompi (popular revolt of wool carders in late medieval Florence). Due to this, the families wealth dropped dramatically. Giovanni di Bicci de' Medici (1360-1429) restored the families fortune when their political influence increased, and was made gonfaliere in 1421. | Giovanni's son, Cosimo de Medici (1389-1464), became the official founder of the Medici fortune. In 1434, he lead the government of Florence and held office in the highest magistry, where he managed banking, trade and industry.

7: Printing Press | Johannes Gutenberg invented the printing press in 1440. He truly changed the lives of people in Europe and all over the world. The demand for books grew and the book trade was exploding. Before the printing press, multiple copies of manuscripts had to be hand made, a stressful task that could take years. The Gutenberg Bible, was the first mass produced book printed with a movable type printing press, which started the "Gutenberg Revolution" and the age of the printed book. | *6 | The Medici family had a large impact as they were heavily interested in the rebirth of Europe, and because of this, the Renaissance blossomed. | While the Medici family ruled Florence, they accomplished many successful acts. They spent money on their city, and with time and thought, had made it the most powerful as well, beautiful city. Florence became a popular place as it flourished in art. They supported artists by feeding, and educating them, as well as providing them with any other necessities. These artists just happened to be Donatello, and Michelangelo- very famous as well successful artists of the Renaissance. The Medici family was overall, extremely helpful.
8: Otto Man Turks | The powerful presence of the Ottoman Empire was felt in the West due to the capture of Constantinople in 1453.

In the 14th century, the prestige of the papacy was brutally undermined when the pope moved his residence from Rome to Avignon in | (1324-1384) | France, As a result of this, society split in to French and anti-French, and there was a high need for two popes. Both groups felt that they had the higher power and to be the true source of authority. As these two groups constantly tried to outdo one other, a strong sense of religious insecurity fell over Europe, and without a doubt, the Church needed to be reformed and purified. | Wycliffe was a preacher as well writer, and even translated the bible to English for his countrymen, He was considered the greatest intellectual in England. | The pope was highly interested in Wycliffe because of his great aspects, and felt that he was the Church's only hope. Unfortunately, Wycliffe refused, as he followed God rather than the Pope's orders. | "No man should follow the Pope, nor no Saint that how is in heaven, but in much as he follows Christ." | In the end, Christ makes the overall decision---FAITH | "Belief teaches us that our blessed God suffers us not to be tempted more than we may."
11: *8 | *9 | John Hus | (1372-1415) | John Hus was a priest and dean of faculty of philosophy at the University of Prague, as well as a preacher in the Chapel of Bethlehem.

The Protestant Reformation was simply both a religious and political construction in the 16th century. The Reformation began as a crisis of faith from in Roman Catholic Church, which led to a challenge with the the power of the papacy (the office of the pope). Martin Luther, who was a monk from Germany, lead | the Reformation. He strongly believed that the Roman Catholic Church was severely corrupt and wished to reform it. He also felt that a reformation was in desperate need for many reasons: the language of the Bible (many people were unable to read Latin) and the selling of forgiveness to the Church. Luther was appalled by a common church practice of the day, the selling of indulgences. Luther sent a copy of his challenges to the bishop who sent it to Rome. | "All who call on God in true faith, earnestly from the heart, will certainly be heard, and will receive what they have asked and desired. " Martin Luther | *10

15: *13 | The Sale of Indulgences | Indulgences were "Get out of Jail Free" cards issued by the Catholic Pope in Rome for certain 'financial' collections that allowed you to think you were buying your way in to Heaven... | You could sin as much as you wanted, only if you had the money | The selling of indulgences was simply a scam in 1517. An official church sanctioned release from temporal penalty given by priests for sins committed. This soon came to be associated with assisting the deceased (purgatory).
