If someone mentions the Renaissance, of course I understand what they’re talking about… who doesn’t? But I followed up a little bit so that I truly understood the depth of this medieval era and found it was a fascinating period in history. The forerunner of this movement was a man named Francesco Petrarca who lived from 1304-74. Renaissance is taken from the French word renaitre, which means to be born again. It was a time period when people began to appreciate ancient culture, particularly that of Rome and Greece.
