Review: Medieval Europe After the Roman Empire fell, Europe fell into darkness: -no trade -no education -constant wars between lords A Feudal system emerged, creating a rigid society based on the exchange of loyalty and service for land and protection
Review: Medieval Europe The Roman Catholic Church was the dominant force of Medieval Europe. The Roman Catholic Church maintained power by threatening excommunication, which would deny the Sacraments (sacred rituals). People who did not receive Sacraments believed they were going to Hell.
Review: Medieval Europe In Eastern Europe, the former Eastern Roman Empire became the Byzantine Empire. Byzantine Christians were different from Roman Catholics. They did not believe in the authority of the Pope, they spoke Greek, and they allowed priests to marry. Overtime, the Byzantines split away and created the Greek Orthodox sect. This is called a Schism. Schism- A permanent split within a religion

They were not successful.
Review: Medieval Europe The Crusades resulted in an increase in trade. Returning crusaders wanted many of the goods they were exposed to including spices, silk, and ivory. Most goods flowed through the Middle East into Italy then throughout Europe

The Renaissance Time period of creativity and changing views Focus shifted from religion to Secular (worldly) pursuits. The Renaissance is characterized by Humanism. Humanism- Intellectual movement focused on secular (worldly) issues instead of religion
Humanism “Focus on worldly rather than religious issues” What this really means is that the artists, thinkers and philosophers will focus on daily life Many artists will focus on humans in their earthly life span, not in the afterlife Humanism weakens the church.
Italian start The Renaissance began in Italy for three reasons: 1)Classical focus 2)Center of trade 3)Wealthy merchants
1) Classical Focus The Renaissance focused on the Classical influences from Ancient Greece and Rome. Italy was the center of the Ancient Roman culture, with architecture, literature and monuments throughout
Center of Trade Italy is a Peninsula (surrounded by water on 3 sides) and therefore had access to much trade. The Italian ‘boot’ kicks into the Mediterranean sea, connecting Italy to the Middle East and Silk Road Remember: Water is a geographic factor that promotes trade
Patron Merchants Due to its ideal location on trade routes, many merchants became very wealthy. These merchants became patrons of the arts, donating large sums to create art pieces in painting, sculptures and architecture. The Roman Catholic Church was another patron of the arts in Renaissance Italy Patron- someone who provides support to a cause or person
Florence and the Medicis Florence is a symbol of the Renaissance. With a large population of poets, artists, scholars and scientists, Florence was an ideal Renaissance City The Medici family became rich through trade, and soon controlled the economic and political spheres of Florence.

Medici Family In the 1400s, the Medici family began a banking business and became very rich Their money bought them political power, but was also used to fund the arts. The Medici family is one of the largest patrons of Renaissance art, second to only the Church. Lorenzo the Magnificent even founded an art school.
Humanities--Humanism The Renaissance promoted creativity, but the Europeans looked to the Ancient Greeks and romans for inspiration Petrarch hunted down ancient Greek and Roman texts and created a library. This helped preserve classical works.
Artistic Golden Age Renaissance art attempted to be more realistic. To do this artists began using perspective Perspective means they drew closer objects larger and farther objects smaller. They also studied live models and classical art to be more realistic.
Renaissance Artists The greatest of the Renaissance artists are still well known today: -Leonardo da Vinci -Michelangelo -Raphael -Donatello
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Yes, the teenage mutant ninja turtles were named after the Renaissance painters. As the creator recalls: “One ninja turtle became four, each named after a Renaissance master, each with a different weapon. "It was, like, 'Here's the next big thing, ninja turtles. Ha-ha- ha,' " Eastman recalls. “
Leonardo da Vinci -painter, sculptor, engineer, writer and musician -seen as a true Renaissance man because of his many skills. -Leonardo dissected corpses to be accurate in anatomy when depicting human forms. -sketched submarines, helicopters and planes hundreds of years before they existed. -Wrote in mirrored writing, making t difficult to decipher. Most famous for the Mona Lisa
Michelangelo Michelangelo was a sculptor, engineer, painter, architect and poet His most famous works are David, Pieta and the Sistine Chapel

Raphael Came after Leonardo and Michelangelo Raphael drew the School of Athens, an imaginary gathering of great thinkers: Plato, Aristotle, Michelangelo, Leonardo and himself. He also created the Madonna, a statue of Mary, Mother of God
Donatello Donatello is a lesser known Renaissance Artist He is best known for his bronze David and the Penitent Magdalene
Machiavelli Studied ancient Rome and politics Wrote The Prince, a guide to gain and maintain power According to Machiavelli, the ends justify the means He said rulers should achieve power regardless of the means to get there
Northern Renaissance The northern Renaissance was delayed because Northern Europe was devastated by the Black Death The Northern Renaissance produced men like Shakespeare and Gutenberg. Flemish painters focused more on scenes of everyday life instead of Religious themes
Shakespeare One of the best known Northern Renaissance men. He has written 37 plays, including Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, and Julius Caesar Shakespeare created many new words in his plays such as bedroom, lonely, generous However, Shakespeare is a very controversial figure. Some claim he was really a woman, he was homosexual or possibly even plagiarized all his plays.
Johann Gutenberg Used a metal printing press to copy the Bible. This led to an explosion of books being printed. More books were quickly made, and cheaply. These cheap books allowed more people to learn how to read and write.
