This examines the early stages of the Renaissance. It shows how the Black Death ironically played an important role in its development. The paper also provides an overview of famous figures during the time, including Lorenzo Medici, Dante Alighieri and Michelangelo .

From the Paper:

"Thanks to benevolent people such as the Holy Roman Emperor and princes, artists were able to devote their time to art, and not have to worry about supporting themselves. This helped art flourish even more as artists could be entirely dedicated to their work. Without this support from both the clergy, and townspeople buying and supporting art and artists, the era would have failed to produce works of the caliber that it did."
