  • The Renaissance
    • Geography
      • Before Renaissance people believed...
        • The world was flat.
        • If you travelled too far by sea you would be eaten by sea monsters or fall off the edge of the world
        • There were only half the continents we know of today.
      • During the Renaissance people believed...
        • The world was round.
        • More seas, oceans and continents.
        • London was centre of the world instead of Jerusulam
      • I think these changes happened because...
        • They had more advanced equipment to navigate
        • They were curious.
        • They weren't afraid.
    • Art
      • Before the Renaissance...
        • Artists were controlled by the Catholic Church.
          • Most paintings were of Jesus
        • The sculptures weren't very sophisticated
      • During the Renaissance...
        • sculptures were made more elegant and realistic.
        • Paintings and sculptures were more detailed
        • Art was less religious
      • I think these changes happened because...
        • The Church didn't control art any more.
    • Literature
      • Before the Renaissance...
        • Monks hand-wrote books on animal skin
        • They had to write every book by hand with intricate designs so there weren't many books
        • As monks were the only ones writing them, only religious books were printed.
      • During the Renaissance...
        • The printing press was invented to produce books instead of handwriting them.
          • This meant that there were lots more books so more people could learn to read and write
      • I think these changes happened because...
        • People were angry with the Catholic Church for only printing religious books.

      • Before the Renaissance people believed that...
        • Body was sacred so couldn't be cut open.
        • Church wouldn't allow dissection+it was wrong to dissect.
      • During the Renaissance people believed that...
        • It was okay to dissect people for scientific knowledge.
        • The human body was as we know it today.
      • I think these changes happened because...
        • People began to doubt the rules of the Church
    • Physics
      • Before the Renaissance people believed that...
