In this paper the author examines the four conditions that brought about the Renaissance in Italy: geographic location; the rise of Christianity and humanism; the existence of artisan and craftsmen's guilds; the patronage of wealthy nobles and the Papacy. The paper concludes with the idea that the Renaissance began in Italy because at that time and in that place there existed an assortment of conditions that fostered creative thinking, valued the output of genius and rewarded it with money, fame and opportunity.

From the Paper:

"One element of the Renaissance is the individual genius of the individual. Great thinkers produced vigorous debate on philosophical issues. The advances made during the period in the fields of science and mathematics were on a par with the most visual artistic achievements of the time. The works of Michelangelo and da Vinci and others remain unmatched by anything in the field of art today. Although the existence of genius may be circumstantial, the existence of so many creative geniuses in one place at one time must be linked to factors that were common to all of them."
