  11. 11. 3. The renaissance<br />It means "rebirth". However, it's most common context is to refer to the period of European history known as the golden age, and the age of enlightenment. This is because after the long periods referred to as the dark ages following the collapse of the Roman Empire, and the Medieval period, where the church dominated and oppressed learning and culture, the renaissance period was seen as a "rebirth" of culture and learning similar to the heights of the ancient world.<br />

As trade in goods increased, trade in ideas grew also. The contact between cultures was in some part due to the Crusades during the 11th century. Commerce and trade soon moved inland along the major routes of trade.<br />
  13. 13. 3. The renaissance<br />Before the Renaissance most art was religious and importance was often illustrated by size. For instance, when painting Mary and Jesus, they would be depicted as larger than the surrounding people, saints, or angels. Renaissance art was more realistic and showed perspective, depth, and substance. Subjects included more life scenes and portraits and were moving toward more secular ideas, instead of purely religious. Some artists studied anatomy in order to paint and sculpt realistically. Even the religious art was more humanistic.<br />

  15. 15. 3. The Renaissance<br />Shakespeare updated the simplistic, two-dimensional writing style of pre-renaissance drama. He focused on creating “human” characters with psychologically complexity. Hamlet is perhaps the most famous example of this. <br />The upheaval in the accepted social hierarchy allowed Shakespeare to explore the humanity of every character regardless of their social position. Even monarchs are given human emotions and are capable of making mistakes. <br />Shakespeare utilized his knowledge of Greek and Roman classics when writing his plays. Before the renaissance, these texts had been suppressed by the Catholic Church. <br />
