The Baroque Period By Abbie Moss


1) The Catholic Church with the inspiration of getting people to stay with the Church. They created art that was inspired by the Bible.

Advancement in the Baroque Literature

Madeleine Scudery (1608-1701) and her heroic adventure novels was one of the very few literature advancements of this time period.

The periods before and after.

Renaissance Period (1300-1600)

The period of the Renaissance had many restraints on their literature and were subjective to mannerist paintings and this was unlike the freedom that was given during the Baroque period.

Classical period OR THE AGE OF ENLIGHTENMENT (1775-1825)

This period was different than the Baroque and classical period where it became focused on concerts and the enjoyment for others and not just ones own self. The church music began to become more conservative and the music became more universal.


I really enjoyed the art and music and all it came with during this time period. It was by far my favorite and that is why I chose this time period. I really enjoyed the spiritual aspect of the era and I could see how the art really would draw the believers to the church. I enjoyed the extravagant, colorful, realistic and rich in detail aspects. I also enjoyed the honesty and the way the artists wanted to make the viewers happy and not just themselves. This era really drew me in with its art and all of its aspects and that is why I really enjoyed learning about this time period.
