Humanities 8


Bringing Renaissance Greats to Life
The Renaissance was a time of rebirth in European history. It was a time when the great thinkers of the time turned from the subject of theology, the study of God, to the study of humanity. The Renaissance is considered by many to be the beginning of modern history.

During our in-class study of the Renaissance we have discovered that many different areas of life, the arts, science, politics and thought (philosophy) were affected by this movement. You will choose a Renaissance figure from the list provided to research and evaluate his/her contribution to the Arts, Sciences, Politics or Thought. Your evaluation will be in the form of a Facebook Profile and Presentation, in which you consider the following points:

3. In what ways is this person’s work a REBIRTH or showing an interest in HUMANITY?

  1. How did the person’s work change society at the time?

  2. Today how do we think of this person?
