WHI Day 38: Introduction to the Renaissance

**1:00 Dismiss Today**
Setting the Stage
During the Middle Ages, Europe suffered from both war and plague.  Those who survived want to celebrate life and the human spirit.  Some began to questions the church, which taught Christians to endure suffering while they awaited their rewards in heaven.  In northern Italy, writers and artists began to express this new spirit and to experiment with different styles.  These men and women would greatly change how Europeans saw themselves and their world.
