Renaissance

The Renaissance (s sənss, audio=en-us-Renaissance.ogg sahnss)Renaissance fr.wav, meaning 're-birth', from renaître 'to be born again'; Rinascimento , from rinascere, with the same meanings.}} was a period in European history marking the transition from the Middle Ages to modernity and covering the 15th and 16th centuries. It occurred after the Crisis of the Late Middle Ages and was associated with great social change. In addition to the standard periodization, proponents of a "long Renaissance" may put its beginning in the 14th century and its end in the 17th century. The traditional view focuses more on the early modern aspects of the Renaissance and argues that it was a break from the past, but many historians today focus more on its medieval aspects and argue that it was an extension of the Middle Ages.
