 WebMuseum: La Renaissance
The term Renaissance, describing the period of European history from the early 14th to the late 16th century, is derived from the French word for rebirth, and originally referred to the revival of the values and artistic styles of classical antiquity during that period, especially in Italy.
In the 19th century, Jules MICHELET and Jakob BURCKHARDT popularized the idea of the Renaissance as a distinct historical period heralding the modern age, characterized by the rise of the individual, scientific inquiry and geographical exploration, and the growth of secular values.
In general, the 15th century saw a modest recovery with the construction of palaces for the urban elites, a boom in the decorative arts, and renewed long-distance trade headed by Venice in the Mediterranean and the HANSEATIC LEAGUE in the north of Europe.

The shaded portion indicates the empire of Mali in the fourteenth century, and the dashed lines trace the main trans-Saharan routes of the period.
From the seventh to the eleventh century, trans-Saharan trade linked the Mediterranean economies that demanded gold—and could supply salt—to the sub-Saharan economies, where gold was abundant.
In the fourteenth century, cowrie shells were introduced from the eastern coast as local currency, but gold and salt remained the principal mediums of long-distance trade.

 CorpWatch : EUROPE: Mercenary Money Made the World Go Around
Historians have already drawn parallels between contemporary horrors and the horrors of the 14th century, when Europe was undermined by successive disasters, from the fl death to the Anglo-French wars, to the peasants' revolts, to the schisms and corruptions of the Church.
And one feature of the 14th century now has disturbing parallels with the contemporary world - the growth of mercenary armies which operate beyond the control of governments or nations.
Looking back on the greed and violence of that dreadful century it is hard to resist the temptation to make parallels with our own; particularly with the private armies which have emerged from the chaos of Africa, and have now spread to Iraq and parts of the Middle East and the old Russian empire.

 14th Century Society
We are an interdisciplinary and multinational group of professional scholars whose research interests focus on the European fourteenth century, a period of history most tactfully described as an "age of adversity." Such an assessment, however, does not tell the whole story.
While it is reasonably well known that the fourteenth century brought plague, warfare, famine, schism, and lousy weather to Europe, the same time period also produced some of our greatest authors, artists, musicians, mystics, philosophers, and theologians.
The 14th Century Society was founded for the purposes of fostering scholarship on this period and providing opportunities for dialogue between fourteenth-century specialists in fields including art history, history, music, language and literature studies, philosophy, and religious studies.

It was during the 12th century that polyphony developed into elaborate forms in two centers: Paris and St. Martial de Limoges, with the latter preceding the former.
The later 14th century was a period during which the French style dominated secular composition throughout Europe.
