Hi everybody, I am a time traveler and today we will be going back in time to the Renaissance. (14th century to 17th century.)
During the Middle Ages there was a time called the Dark Ages which was a time of famine, war, ignorance, and a pandemic know as the Black death. When the Renaissance had started it was know as rebirth and it was a relief for the people.
It all started in Florence, Italy in the 14th century with the movement called Humanism which was the idea that man was the center of his universe.
Soon the Renaissance evolved and became huge in Europe. People did things such as art, science, architecture, and literature.
Some of the most famous paintings were: Mona Lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci, School of Athens by Raphael, and many more!
The Renaissance came to an end by the end of the 15th century with the Counter-Reformation which was when the Catholic church suppressed artists and writers. In 1545 anything that promoted humanism was punished by death.
