12 important events and people in the renaissance

  1. 1. By: Meredith
  2. 2. • Johannes Gutenberg invented the printing press in 1440. Not long after he started to publish books and Bibles so that people could read what others had to say. Without this it would be really hard to find books to read and to practice reading new things. Now there are lots of books being printed by the printing press. People are able to read book and some people like to read and instead of writing up a 60,000 word book, they can print it. This means that we have to spend less time writing books and we can spend more time with our family and friends. We can now read a lot of books and we can learn things from them too. There is also the newspaper which can give us information and can keep us up to date in things around the world.•

  4. 4. On October 12th 1492 Christopher Columbus landed in theCaribbean’s. After a long journey across the Atlantic Oceanhe landed in what he thought was India. I think that thechange it made helped people expand territories. It alsomade people keener on “discovering” the new lands whichlet us know more about the world. It has made a hugedifference to us because now the America’s are a big partof your lives. We get food, clothing and other imports fromthem. They are home to many of the world’s population,e.g. refugee’s, lots of college students, and businesses,and it develops the world’s economic, social, andeducational needs. (But other countries do this too). So ifColumbus never tried to go to India we wouldn’t knowabout the America’s and we wouldn’t have something’s wehave today.

  6. 6. In the years 1503–1519 Leonardo de Vinci painted theMona Lisa. It was a picture a woman named Lisa; she alsohad a small smile which makes it mysterious. It is the mostfamous painting in the world and is also the mostexpensive. Leonardo had used shading so that the picturelooked 3-D. This made the picture more realistic. Now weuse it to make the paintings look like people and it makesthe world we live in more beautiful and the museums havethe paintings from the renaissance. This means that wenow know what the art was like back then so we know howwe developed and how we can continue to develop art indifferent ways. SO without the renaissance we wouldn’thave this type of art.

  8. 8. In 1512 Niccolo Machiavelli wrote a book on how hethought you needed to be a good leader and most of themwere about being cunning and sneaky. It leads people to lieto the people and not allow them to do things they shouldlike vote. People have interpreted his book and now peopleare following things that he wrote about so now there canbe really mean leaders so people can get into troublebecause the leaders. We care because people get madand blame the leader if they are like Machiavelli’s bookbecause they can be really mean. So if he hadn’t writtenthe book the world today would be different.

  10. 10. In 1520 Martin Luther nailed 95 theses to the door of achurch in Germany to complain about the problems of theChurch. Then he was put into the Inquisition and called aheretic for doing this even though lots of people agree withhim. Today people are still using the religion he made sothat means that people cared and agreed. People listenedto him and today that is one of the reasons that there aremany different types of Christianity. Now people can maketheir own ideas about the bible. So if he hadn’t done that nomonk would have. He stood up for it but he wasn’t thathappy.

  12. 12. In 1533 Henry the 8th became the head of the EnglishChurch. He made a new version of Christianity that wasmuch like Catholicism except they could divorce. He thendivorced his first wife to marry another. He made himselfthe head of the Church of England. It changed the waypeople thought because now they could divorce andremarry if they are christens. People in the modern day aredivorcing more than ever. People are remarrying as well.People are still using the version of Christianity that KingHenry had created because they are Christens just theyare also allowed to divorce. So without King Henry it wouldprobably be really had to divorce anyone.

  14. 14. In 1559 Queen Elizabeth the first ruled England without aking for 45 years and proved to the world that woman arejust as strong and smart as men are if they receive thesame education. I think that was a big accomplishment forsomeone in her time to do because of all the illnesses anddeaths. Now people know that women are smart and braveand can be as successful as any man. Women can get thesame jobs and can do just as well because they are treatedthe same as men. This means that now women aren’tproperty like people thought they were before. So withoutpowerful women, like Elizabeth the first, women could stillbe what they were like in the renaissance.

  16. 16. In 1603 Samuel de Champlain traveled to the top of NorthAmerican, to what is now known as Canada. Unfortunatelyhe killed the people that lived there. Soon after his 2nd visithe made a castle in what is now Quebec City. It would havebeen really different if he hadn’t found Canada. NowCanada is a really big place and lots of famous cities arethere like Vancouver and Quebec itself. There are lots ofpeople live in Canada. Quebec is a really popular city and ithas a lot of history. Without him French wouldn’t havespread as much as it has and it wouldn’t be as important toknow. So without Samuel de Champlain Canada wouldn’tbe the way it is today and French wouldn’t be either.

  18. 18. In 1666 Sir Isaac Newton was sitting underneath and appletree when an apple hit him on the head. Soon after hecame up with the idea of gravity. I think that the changelead to ideas about the Earth, moon, and stars. It isimportant because without his theory we would be lostwhen it comes to space and how the planets revolve. Wehave learnt about the tide which can save lives whenpeople are swimming out at night. It has helped us withspace travel because now we can predict where the moonwill be. Because of his discovery we have learnt about theforces and we know that if we drop anything on the Earth itwill fall to the ground. If Isaac Newton hadn’t figured thisout we could still be wondering about gravity and theplanets.

  20. 20. The Inquisition took place all over the renaissance. Theymade people fear the Church to get more Christians. Theymade people rethink the Church because if lots of peoplearen’t Catholic than something must be wrong with it. Nowpeople can be all different religions and we can see that intruth the Church was corrupt and that the Church learntfrom their mistakes and now people can be whatever theywant to be which makes the people happy because theydon’t have to worry about their religion because they don’tcare.

  22. 22. All throughout the renaissance people were discoveringnew things about medicine. People started to learn moreabout the body, the way in worked, and what was inside, sonew cures were found and new ideas were formed aboutwhat happens to the body. This way we know how to helpnew lives and we know how to end lives painlessly. Weused that knowledge to increase our own so that peopleare safer and we can help them more. Without the studiesthat the people did than we would have never found a cureto the things that we are facing right now. But since they didwe save lots of lives and we can stay health too.

  24. 24. The Aztecs lived all over the renaissance. They had a bigidea of gods and their architecture was things that lookedlike the ancient romans made it. Now there is a lot ofarchitecture that we can base ideas on and we havedeveloped the south of Mexico faster because they haddeveloped it more than most of the people already therealready. So now the architecture can inspire us to do otherthings like that.
