Renaissance

Once the theocentric view of life in the Middle Ages had had its day, the Renaissance made man the measure of all things. Throughout the 15th and 16th centuries, a breath of artistic, literary and philosophical renovation blew through Europe and led to the revival of the values of the ancient Greeks and Romans. Humanist and Renaissance ideas took root in Spain thanks to the close links between the crown of Aragon and Italy, and between the Kingdom of Castile and Flanders. This was the time of the end of the Reconquest, the consolidation of the monarchy and the discovery of America. The mediaeval Hispanic style merged with the European Renaissance to produce new works of literature, art and architecture.
