The Renaissance By: Leslie Martinez

Marco Polo and the Silk Road

The reopening of the Silk Road helped spark the Renaissance by the Mongolians. How the Mongolians helped the Silk Road is because since the Silk Road became un-safe people wouldn't travel on the Silk Roads because it became dangerous but once the Mongolians gained control in China the silk roads became safe again and Marco Polo was able to travel safely. The renaissance was the movement and the spark.(Holt 279).

Renaissance writing

How it reflected the ideas of humanism is by Dante he wrote in the languages people would understand. Shakespeare writing attracted a wide audience is because a lot of people would read his books so they would go to the play. Also not only rich people would go but poor people would go. His plays were funny and sad. His plays were big so the place he would go play the play had different section. Like the bottom would be for the poor and they would have to stand up.
