The Renaissance played a huge impact on the coming of the Reformation. There were many long lasting effects from the Renaissance that played a big part in the transition to the Reformation. The Renaissance was a long period of time in the Late 14th through the 16th centuries. It was sparked with a lot of classical art, literature, and learning. A lot of those items were many of the long lasting effects in to the Reformation. I think Art was probably the most significant out of these many items.
The Reformation was a religious movement in Western Europe in the 16th century. This literally came right after the end of the Renaissance. There were two types of Reformations, The Protestant Reformation, which dealt with the Christians. There was also the Counter Reformation which dealt with the Catholics. That was also know was the Catholic Revival. The Reformation leads to a series of religious wars that eventually turned in to the 30 years’ war.
As you may recall, there were many famous Renaissance painters such as, Michelangelo, Leonardo DaVinci, Peter Brueghel and many more! During the Protestant Reformation, many of the styles of art and humanism were expressed in their paintings. Many of the famous paintings from the Renaissance were expressed during the Protestant and Counter-Reformation times. Paintings such as David by Michelangelo. And The Peasant Weading by Peter Breughel. Michelangelo had many famous painting strategies. His many famous strategies such as painting with nudes and much creativity. Michelangelo became one of the most famous painters of all time. The Church ADORED Michelangelo’s paintings. Shortly after this people got offended because the people of the Church didn’t like seeing nudes in paintings. The church forced Michelangelo to conceal all of the nude paintings. He was not happy about this decision. However, This made the people of the Church very interested in the Arts and became of the crucial factors of the Reformation and played a huge role in the transition from the Renaissance into the Reformation.
... look at photograph of those flowers not at their actual painting. The tones are very clear, no mixing and very ... is very sad. I like the mystery of the painting. You can't really tell what is happening on this ... no life just an image. In Cézanne's painting fruits look like every one of them has a soul ... painting. Why the person is screaming, and if this is ...
The Medici family played a gigantic role from the transition from the Renaissance into the Reformation. The Medici family was known as the, “Godfathers of the Renaissance.” They brought many famous art, and learning in to the Renaissance. This family of powerful rulers I took over Florence, Italy in the 16th century. Clement VII Medici, Son of Giuliano De Medici, was elected Pope after Leo X’s death in 1521. He rose to the thrown with a high reputation politics. Clement depended on Charles V greatly. The Medicis endorsed art and made all of these contributions to the Reformations. All of The Members of the Medici played a significant role in the transition of the Renaissance to the Reformation by using their talent and skills in this time.
I really enjoyed learning about the Reformation and the effects that carried over from the Renaissance into the Reformation. It was really cool to see what happened the the Renaissance after just learning about it in class. I really hope I get to see more about what happens in the Counter Reformation and the English Reformation. The video that we saw, The Medici and the Reformation really gave me a lot of background insight on the Medici which I think gave me ideas of what to put in to this assignment. It also made me think about why art is so popular from these times and really made me wonder this question, “Where would Art be know without the Renaissance and Reformation?”
