Solution

The European Renaissance began in the 14th century C.E. and reached its zenith in the 15th-16th century C.E. These three centuries proved to be the foundational stage of a culture based on rationalism and science.

This period gave a new direction to human intellect, genius, and way of life. People got more interested in unfolding the mysteries of the universe by adopting a scientific approach. Many people began to write poetry, drama, and fiction, a field that had remained untouched so far. Novel experiments were conducted in the field of science. In pre-renaissance times, the thought about the existence of the universe revolved around the concept of ‘God’. Now, humans formed the centre of this thought. This way of thinking is called ‘Humanism’.
