The Renaissance- The Beginning of the “Modern Period”

The Renaissance period originally started from the 14th to the 17th century, immediately following the Middle Ages and later spreading to the rest of Europe from its birthplace in Italy. This era is well suited to fill the gap in between modern era and Middle Ages. Unlike the Middle Ages, the Renaissance was particular on the classical forms of art, literature and music.

This period was the time of enlightenment and perhaps the most romanticized period in history, a time when chivalry was king and knowledge was the power. As the society and economy changed, new ideas began to popup.

 The causes which lead to Renaissance:-
·         Increased trade with Asia and other regions.
·         Rise of rich and powerful merchants.
·         Increased desire for technical knowledge.
