The Renaissance Time Period

The Renaissance time period started around the mid 1400s and ended in about the early 1600s. It was a major period focused on plays, art, music, and a rebirth in knowledge.

This time era was focused pretty much on the reflection of art. People also began to go to school to learn about their history, science, and their culture. Many famous artists first began in this time frame; including, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and many others.

The Mona Lisa

Artists during the Renaissance time period were considered to have a unique style by using their imagination and interest in art. Many famous artists became well known during this time, for example, Michelangelo. Michelangelo created the Sistine Chapel. Another person who was a famous artist was Leonardo da Vinci, who created Mona Lisa, also known as La Gioconda. Raphael was a very famous Italian Renaissance artist, who created the Stanza della Segnatura.

Stanza della Segnatura

The history of acting was completely changed during the Renaissance time era. People really began watching plays during this time because the directors and creators had a lot more to offer. They offered many different types of genres, for example, comedy, drama, romance, or a combination of them all. A very famous play writer then was William Shakespeare. He wrote Romeo and Juliet, The Tempest, Midsummer Nights Dream, and many more. There are a whole bunch of play writers during this time that got famous but, not all of them stayed famous, unlike William Shakespeare, who is famous to this day.

Another famous trait about the renaissance time period is the massive change in knowledge. People consider this time to be a change from god to man. During this time Christopher Columbus discovered the “New World,” Amerigo Vespucci discovered America, and many other discoveries took place. Things discovered ranged from microscope and telescope lenses, to wallpaper. The pendulum clock, the printing press, wallpaper, telescope and microscope lenses, a flush toilet, and the submarine, were all inventions of during the renaissance time era. If it weren’t for all of these inventions and discoveries, you probably wouldn’t be reading this paper right now.

The Temple of Vesta

There are many wonderful things about the Renaissance time era. Art, music, knowledge, and acting are just some of the few wonderful things about this time. People look at this time as a time of war and depression but, there was actually more entertainment than there was war. If I could chose whether to stay in this time or in that time, I would want to go to that time just to experience the plays, music, and see the art all up front and personal. If people skipped over the Renaissance time period everything would be very different.

    Hey, Adam, engaging topic. It is fascinating looking at certain periods in history to draw out trends or lessons, wondering whether the trend is genuine or if we are just placing an interface over it from our own perspective.

    I liked your writing. You might consider getting rid of words such as: pretty much, really, very. They don’t add much and sometimes they detract.


  33. Crizazy

    On January 30, 2009 at 10:11 pm

    Thanks for the advice, Brian, but I wrote this when I was a freshman in high school so I’d like to keep it like how a freshman would write it. I posted this more as like a homework help for high school and college students. Using those words keeps it from looking as if I’m a professional at that kind of thing, because I’m not. On my future articles I will keep that in mind.
