[1] KEY TOPICS KEY TOPICS KEY TOPICS KEY TOPICS KEY TOPICS The 'Golden Age' as many call it, is believed to be the time in which Europe has finally started to enter the 'Modern Age.'

[1] The cultural, intellectual and artistic movement of the Renaissance, which saw a resurgence of learning based on classical sources, began in Italy around the 14th Century, and gradually spread across most of Europe over the next two centuries. [1] This Greco-Roman cultural foundation has been immensely influential on the language, politics, educational systems, philosophy, science, art, and architecture of the modern world: From the surviving fragments of classical antiquity, a revival movement was gradually formed from the 14th century onwards which came to be known later in Europe as the Renaissance, and again resurgent during various neo-classical revivals in the 18th and 19th centuries.

The Renaissance style came directly from Italy during the Quattrocento to Hungary first in the Central European region, thanks to the development of early Hungarian-Italian relationships - not only in dynastic connections, but also in cultural, humanistic and commercial relations - growing in strength from the 14th century. [2] Although musicologists typically group the music of the Trecento (music of the 14th century) with the late medieval period, it included features which align with the early Renaissance in important ways: an increasing emphasis on secular sources, styles and forms; a spreading of culture away from ecclesiastical institutions to the nobility, and even to the common people; and a quick development of entirely new techniques.

[1] Though many years have passed at this point from the time of the early Renaissance movement, by the late 16th century, artists like El Grecco and Caravaggio were painting in the style known as Mannerism.
