The Renaissance

The RenaissanceMr. PerreaultRenaissance/Reformation Unit 2012Why the French Word?!Renaissance is composed of the word Naissance which means birth. So Renaissance means rebirth. Rebirth of what? The Middle Ages were the Dark Ages, not much was going on with art, music, culture and so on. This all changed in the 1400s! So What Happened?!

The Ninja Turtles happened!!! Sort ofMichelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo, and Donetello were all Renaissance artists. Splinter, the rat, tells of how he named the Ninja Turtles after these artists! Michaelangelo


Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni (1475 1564)Italian painter best known for painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel and his statue of David.He did not ride a skateboard or say dude!


Michaelangelo painted the Sistine Chapel for 4 years, depicting scenes from the Bible. David took less time, but has appeared in pop culture including an episode of the Simpsons. Raphael

RaphaelRaffaello Sanzio da Urbino (1483 1520)Painted many chapels, portraits, but most famous of his paintings of Christ. No Ninja Skills.

Da Vinci Code?An author, Dan Brown, published a book called The Da Vinci Code, and it became a movie. In the movie, Da Vinci left codes to hide the truth about the true story of Jesus Christ. The Truth: There is no solid evidence that Da Vinci had a code, but given the body of work he left behind anything is possible. Brain BreakWhat does the Renaissance mean? Who were the painters of the Renaissance? (Think Ninja Turtles!) What did Da Vinci do during his life? The Renaissance The Renaissance began in Italy, aka The Southern Renaissance, and moved north to Germany and then onto the Netherlands, eventually to England. This was the Northern Renaissance. Humanism - A system of thought that centers on humans and their values, capacities, and worth.The focus was more on the human spirit than on religion, hence all the paintings and sculptures of people. The Renaissance Art wasnt the only part of the Renaissance. MusicLiteraturePhilosophyMedicineSocietyMusicComposers: William Byrd, John Dowland (the composers of the era would lead into the Baroque Period with J.S. Bach)Instruments: Violins, Violas, Cellos, Mandolins, Guitars, and Lutes. Eventually a Harpsichord then the Piano-Forte (soft/loud) aka Piano. Most instruments were adapted from Crusade-era gifts brought back from the Middle East. Lute The Lute is the grandfather of the modern guitar. It is a copy of the Ud, popular in Egypt and the Middle East.

Violin The violin wasnt like our modern version.

Stradivarius Eventually in the late 1600s, an Italian cabinet maker will make the modern violin out of these instruments. To get your own Strad, be ready to pay as high as $20 million!!!!

Church MusicDuring the Middle Ages, monks kept music alive. Guido dArezzi (Guidos Hand) created a system of notation. Pope Gregory I allowed music in Catholic Church, just no pipe organs they were banned! Gregorian Chant was used until the Renaissance when church music grew. Chant Music
