The Renaissance

The Renaissance was a period of great development in Europe's art, architecture, literature, philosophy, sciences, and exploration. It started in the fourteenth century and reached its full flowering in the sixteenth century. Northern Italy, particularly Florence, is seen as the birthplace of the Renaissance. (Please note: national boundaries and names during the Renaissance were often vastly different from their modern counterparts. The wording of many questions and answers reflects this.)
