Brief introduction to Humanism in the Renaissance
Renaissance Humanism was a European cerebral movement that began in the 14th century. The humanist movement was established from the reawakening of European scholars of many Greek and Latin scripts. Humanists developed a more complex type of classic scholarship and tried to understand the works of the Roman and Greek people which seemed extremely significant to them. During this time people focused more on self worth, dignity, and was more concerned with their life on earth rather than religion and the afterlife.
"If those committed to the quest fail, they will be forgiven. When lost, they will find another way. The moral imperative of humanism is the endeavor alone, whether successful or not, provided the effort is honorable and failure memorable."
E. O. Wilson
