Hi! Welcome to the Renaissance! The Renaissance was a time period in the 1500s and 1600s when ideas from ancient Rome and Greece were rethought and new ideas, such as the printing press, were born. Enjoy your stay.
This is Leonardo Da Vinci. He was what they call a Renaissance man. This means he was good at a variety of things. Including science! He used science to come up with the first idea of a helicopter and the design of the gear.
This is Johannes Gutenberg. He invented the printing press in the early 1450's. This invention made it easier to produce books. Because of this, knowledge spread much faster and books were cheaper.
Martin Luther is the man who started the reformation. He wrote the 95 Theses and nailed them to the door of the Wittenburg Church. The 95 these were a list of complaints against indulgences. An Indulgence was a document you payed the church for to forgive all your sins.
This is John Calvin. He agreed with Martin Luther"s ideas about the church. He was the founder of Calvinism. They believe that People should work hard on their work and to become a better person. Calvin believed that people should pick their own clergy members.
So as we see, the renaissance had a big impact on the world today. We still have things like protestant religions and a form of printing press. Alot of art from the time is very famous, such as the mona lisa, the statue of David, and The sistine chapel ceiling. As we remember what a great time the renaissance was, we know that we will continue to have great ideas and grow as a society.
