Spread of the Renaissance
Architecture during the Renaissance
Art in the Northern Renaissance
Once Italy was through with its Renaissance, its time of flourishing and great acheivements, it fell into the Dark Ages. This period of Italian history is also called the Middle Ages. The Dark Ages was a time of dreariness and a lack of enthusiasm for new ideas and beliefs that occured around 476 to 1000 AD. People during this time were not as eager to learn and spread their thoughts as they were during the Renaissance. As an affect, the golden ages moved from Italy to northern countries during the 14th through 16th centuries. Up north, people made translated Bibles, gunpowder, and caravels. Once the Renaissance left the north, it moved on to Spain and lasted through th 14th, 15th, and 16th centuries. The Spanish made great advances in politics, music, architecture, and sculpting. Throught the 15-17th centuries, the French had their Renaissance. They achieved in art, mainly in forms called late Mannerism and early Boroque, and music. By the 15 century, the Renaissance had also found its way to Germany. From there, it moved on to Poland and then the Netherlands. To finish of the golden ages, England was the last to receive it.
