    European Renaissance

    European Renaissance
    The Renasissance began during the 15th and ended during the 17th Century. It was a time of changes and a "revival" of learning. The Catholic Church was changing because of all the rebelious leaders like John Calvin and Martin Luther and art was something new and unlike anything before. The European Renasisance was a time for changes in everyday life. I picked this event because I thought the Renaissance was something Europe desperately needed. The picture I chose was a painting from then.

He started this in 1436 and finished 1440. Gutenberg printed the first book, the Gutenberg Bible. This was a major accomplishment and would change writing forever. I thought this invention was imoprtant because it was a start of something new. It was amazing, and without it, we wouldn't have many things we have today.
