This suggests that the definition of art that emerged during the Renaissance differed significantly from the accepted definitions applied to art during the Middle Ages. However, the word ‘Renaissance’ itself means, literally, “rebirth” and it was applied to the ideas of artistic renewal that took place in this time period as the people of Italy and other nations began rediscovering the skill of the ancient world that represented for them a golden age of shared culture, reason, and creativity. While this is the general claim, how much evidence is actually in existence that illustrates that antiquity was highly influential in Italian Renaissance architecture? What indications exist that suggest the artists and architects of the Renaissance were inspired by the classical examples that were coming to light?
As the structural ruins of the ancient world were being rediscovered and the principles of science were again coming to light heading into the 1400s, the Italian Renaissance was born. The focus provided during the Renaissance did have a quite different approach from the approach of their predecessors, as the art created during the Renaissance reflected ancient myths and legends as well as contemporary thought and Christian ideals. As the church simultaneously underwent a period of Reformation, rejecting the focus on material splendors, such as the gold-plated iconography, and turning instead to its simpler, purer early forms, many artists during the Renaissance found themselves pulled between Christianity and paganism, heaven and earth, and found a way to express this conflict in the magnificent works of art and architecture they produced. The artists of the Italian Renaissance were given greater abilities to communicate with their audiences not only in subject matter and the application of scientific principles, but also& that they were working with a more educated audience capable of understanding the finer nuances of these works.&nbsp.
