The Renaissance

In French, the literal translation of "Renaissance" is rebirth - an appropriate title, considering the word refers to a cultural revolution that took place in Europe from the 14th to 17th centuries. The Renaissance saw new beginnings in almost every aspect of society: art, philosophy, literature, architecture and science.
