The Renaissance changed man’s view of man by embracing humanism through visual arts and literature. During the Middle Ages, the Roman Catholic Church and the Pope played a big role in Europe. The art and literature focused on religion such as Jesus Christ and sins. The Renaissance, also meaning “rebirth,” brought new ideas to man. They started to see new ways to make art and literature without having a deep religious meaning to it.
Man’s view of man changed through new styles of art. The text “The Last Days of the Renaissance & The March of Modernity” by Theodore Rabb contrasts “Mona Lisa” by Leonardo Da Vinci and “Madonna Enthroned Between Two Angels” by Duccio di Buoninsegna.
