Accurately named, the renaissance is French for rebirth, or revival. The
renaissance was the time in which Italy, and much of Northern Europe had a
cultural uprising. This took place after the medieval era, where there were
nearly no huge technological breakthroughs. However, during the
renaissance, technology advanced, realism in art became more significant,
and due to the printing press, authors began writing. The renaissance can
be seen as the beginnings of the “modern world”, and its effects can be
seen even today.
Chapter 1- Italian Renaissance
Giotto was born in 1267, around Florence. When he was young, he had a talent
for painting, and Cimabue, a great Florentine Painter, realized this and took Giotto
in as an apprentice. When he turned twenty, he got married and had many
children. Giotto is recognized as a revolutionary, who took the flat Byzantine-style
into three-dimensional realism. He was responsible for decorating the Scrovegni
Chapel, otherwise known as the Arena chapel. His frescoes included paintings of
the Angel Gabriel, and the Virgin Mary.

Church of St. Bavo, Ghent.”

Jan van Eyck was important to the Renaissance because he had created oil
painting which replaced the egg-tempora method.
He began monochromatic drawing with egg-tempora on a wood-panel and used
oil paints over it to make it look three dimensional and have rich details.
Jan van Eyck played the role of an important artist who helped raise the
popularity of art and made artwork look more detailed and have an effect on
contrasting colors.

Chapter 7 - Technology...Part I
Compound Microscope:
Invented by Zacharias Janssen in 1590, the compound microscope is an optical
instrument that magnifies objects, and makes microscopic objects visible. He first
discovered it when he was experimenting with lenses with his father. They put
several lenses in a tube and discovered that objects could be seen much bigger;
bigger than with a magnifying glass. The original design could magnify objects up
to 9x, and today, a common compound microscope can magnify up to 400x.
Because of his discovery, scientists can study microscopic organisms, and
doctors have been able to study cells, to further help medical science.

Flush Toilet:
The first flush toilet was invented in 1596. Sir John Harrington made the first one
for himself and his godmother. However, because he was teased, he never made
another one, though he continued to use the one he did make. It wasn’t until 200
years later that it was reinvented, and started to be commonly used. The flush
toilet is a toilet which is cleaned of waste by the flow of water. This allows for
cleaner bathrooms, more sanitation, and ultimately causes less disease to be

Printing Press:
The printing press is a machine that used ink and brass letters on paper in order
to form words, sentences and paragraphs. Invented in 1436 by Johannes
Gutenberg, the printing press was able to mass produce literature. Originally, it
was used mainly for printing bibles, but it soon expanded to almanacs, poetry,
romances, and eventually, a new form of printing music was invented.
Chapter 8-How is the Renaissance linked to
Modern Day?
During the renaissance, new forms of art and technology were invented. These
new ideas, though they are from hundreds of years ago, shaped the world we
live in today, and can still be seen. For example, when the printing press was
invented, anyone was able to create books. Before this, nearly nobody read
anything; even the bible was only read by priests. It is because of this that we
are able to study writings by people such as Machiavelli. His book, “the prince”,
which was meant as a guide for politicians, is read today by many American
