Time period in European history in which there
was a “rebirth” of ancient Greek and Roman
ideas. After the Middle Ages, there was a
resurgence of intellectualism, art, literature,
architecture, etc. Many thinkers emphasized
the importance of the individual.
A. Italy-the Renaissance began in Italy and spread to the rest
of the world.
1. Leonardo da Vinci-“The Renaissance Man”-painter,
sculptor, architect, inventor, mathematician, etc.
2. Niccolo Machiavelli-Wrote The Prince, which
encouraged leaders to think about practicality
rather than morality in politics. These ideas have
influenced leaders around the world.

Nobility-Aristocrats who owned most of the land and
held political power as advisors to the king.
Peasants and Townsfolk-The large majority of people
ran businesses, traded, or worked for very low
wages with no power to change society.
