The Renaissance was a cultural and scholarly movement which stressed the rediscovery and application of texts and thought from classical antiquity, occurring in Europe during c. 1400 – c. 1600. Essentially, it was a cultural and intellectual movement, intimately tied to society and politics, of the late 14th to early 17th centuries, although it is commonly restricted to just the 15th and 16th centuries.
It is considered to have originated in Italy. It was stimulated primarily by: Petrarch, who had a passion for rediscovering lost manuscripts and a fierce belief in the civilizing power of ancient thought and the social climate in Florence.
At its core, the Renaissance was a movement dedicated to the rediscovery and use of classical learning, i.e. knowledge and attitudes from the Ancient Greek and Roman eras. Renaissance literally means ‘rebirth’, and Renaissance thinkers believed the period following the fall of Rome, which they labeled the Middle Ages, had seen a decline in cultural achievement compared with the earlier eras.
