This storyboard does not have a description.
Francesco Petrarch, a Florentine who lived in the 1300s, was an early Renaissance humanist. In monasteries and churches, he found and assembled a library of Greek and Roman manuscripts. Petrarch also wrote literature of his own.
My name is Francesco Petrarch, and, through my efforts and those of others encouraged by my example, the works of Cicero, Homer, and Virgil again became known to Western Europeans. I also wrote literature of my own including my "Sonnets to Laura," love poems inspired by a woman I knew only from a distance, which greatly influenced later writers. This piece of work makes me a humanist because it affects the future, allowing progress to happen in order to improve our world throughout the generations.
Humanism is focusing on enjoying the present and improving everyday to make the future even more amusing. It is using all of the knowledge present to create a brighter future. Humanism is moving forward in life. I, Ema Dono, believe that Francesco Petrarch is a humanist because his works and actions improved the future for himself and so many others after him.
