Storyboard Text

  • Hi. I'm Niccolò Machiavelli and I was an Italian humanist of the Renaissance. I was born May 3rd, 1469 and I died June 21st, 1527. I lived in Florence Italy as a diplomat.
  • Machiavelli Background
  • Being a former leader, I wrote this document "The Prince". The document contains my ideas on how leaders should rule their states. I believe that if you run a state under fear instead of love, your people will turn against you.
  • "The Prince"
  • A humanist is someone who focuses on their time and future instead of religion and the Church. A humanist also affects the way people lived after reforms are made. I am a humanist because I focused on teaching rulers how to rule their states without being overthrown or rebelled against.
  • What is a Humanist?
  • Hi. I am Albrecht Dürer but some know me as the "German Leonardo".  In 1494, I traveled to Italy to study the techniques of many masters. I used these techniques to make many pieces of art during my lifetime.
  • Albrecht Background
  • This is my engraving of a peasant couple. In this piece of art, I used many new techniques, showing how the Renaissance was affecting art. To do this, I etched a design on a metal plate with acid. After this, I use the engraving to make prints by shading over them.
  • The Peasants
  • A humanist is someone who focuses on their time and future instead of religion and the Church. A humanist also affects the way people lived after reforms are made. I am a humanist because I found new ways to improve artwork during my time instead of focusing on the Church.
