The Renaissance was a period of time between 1400 and 1700 where “profound and enduring upheaval and transformations in culture, politics, art and society” in Europe rook place.[1] The modern individual will become a predominant part of the period “as well as the social and cultural institutions that define so many people in the western world today.”[2]

The Italian word Rinascita (rebirth) was used in the 16th century regarding this period. Jules Michelet coined the French word Renaissance in the 19th century to “represent a progressive, democratic condition that celebrated the great virtues of reason, truth, art and beauty.”[3]
