The Renaissance By malenita solis

Marco Polo and the Silk Road

The reopening of the Silk Road helped spark the renaissance is it was safer and easier for people to cross and trade between the lands,because the soldiers didn't protect the travelers the travelers didn't cross the Silk Road.In chapter 11 section 1 paragraph 3 it states "soldiers no longer protected travelers between Europe and Asia.They once again made the roads safer for travelers and traders."(Holt 299) this shows my evidence connects is how the soldiers stopped protecting the travelers who crossed the Silk Road and once became opened and it was easier and safer.It was actually really good when the Silk Road reopened so travelers can trade and get valuable things and profit to support their family.

Rediscovering the Past(Greek and Roman)

Greek and Roman classical ideas helped shape the development of the renaissance is because they gave new classical ideas to the renaissance.In document 3 "this interest had been caused by the rediscovering of many ancient writings that Europeans thought that had been lost"()this connects how is the ancient writings had been lost but they had found it and they got inspired.the renaissance was good when it found the ancient because it made the renaissance more beautiful.

The biography of Michelangelo

Paper and Printing (Johann Gutenberg)

The impact that this had on literacy is instead of copy it down it was easier to stamp and make like a hundred books a day or even more.

Renaissance Writing (William Shakespeare)


The way William Shakespeare's ides reflected humanism is because Shakespeare put on plays so it shows the humans,movement,and the fillings of other people.In chapter 11 section 3 paragraph 19 it states "ever since,people have enjoyed the beauty of Shakespeare's language and his understanding of humanity."(Holt)This conecte is how is because Shakespeare put on plays showing humanity.Willam Shakespeare's writing attacted to wide audience because William Shakespeare didn't only right in French he wrote his plays in English.In chapter 11 section 3 paragraph 19 it states "the work of Cervantes,Rabelais,and Shakespeare have been translated in a dozen of languages."(Holt)This connects is because it shows that Shakespeare and other people translated into many other languages.Even though all of the things that happen there are still sculptures,plays,art and many more thing that Shakespeare did we still have today.

Love looks not with the eyes,but with the mind;and therefore is winged Cupid painted blind --William Shakespeare,Tempest
Doubt thou the stars are fire; Doubt that the sun doth move; Doubt truth to be a liar; But never doubt I love... --William Shakespeare,Hamlet
