Facts about the Renaissance

The Renaissance lasted about 250 years. It started in Italy, around 1350, and ended around 1600. The word "Renaissance" means rebirth. What was reborn was an interest in learning. For a long time, after the fall of the Roman Empire, there had been little to no interest or time to learn much of anything except how to stay alive in very violent times. Most people had not learned how to read or write. But slowly, people began to want to learn again. This new beginning was called the Renaissance.  more info- http://worldhistory.mrdonn.org/renaissance.html
