The Renaissance
The purpose of this is to inform you on how Andreas Vesalius changed our lives and also changed the world. He was a part of the Renaissance and helped change the face of this planet for the better.
The Renaissance was a time period between the end of the 14th to mid 16th century. It’s name came from the french word “Renaissance” which meant “rebirth”. During this time people started asking themselves why, and started to realize that they could think independently. Also the people’s decisions weren’t as influenced by religion, or in most cases the church. This movement was started by humanistic thoughts spread everywhere by protestants who wanted to split away from the church. Soon enough people started to embrace this idea and it continued to spread at a rapid pace.
Being a Renaissance man/woman is a very special thing. The literal definition is a man or woman who is skilled and knowledgeable in many fields. There is much more to that though. When a Renaissance person creates some work that they share with the public it affects the way the public thinks.

The citizens were very irritated because of this. This was the cause of the many different churches popping up and saying they have their “own” religion. In reality they just had a different variation of christianity. Some examples of these churches are Lutheranism, Zwinglian, and Calvinism. On the left is a picture of a calvinist church.
