Definition of Renaissance

Renaissance
Renaissance Re*nais`sance" (F. re-n[asl]`s[aum]Ns"; E. r[-e]-n[=a]s"sans), n. [F., fr. rena[^i]tre to be born again. Cf. Renascence.] A new birth, or revival. Specifically: (a) The transitional movement in Europe, marked by the revival of classical learning and art in Italy in the 15th century, and the similar revival following in other countries. (b) The style of art which prevailed at this epoch. The Renaissance was rather the last stage of the Middle Ages, emerging from ecclesiastical and feudal despotism, developing what was original in medi[ae]val ideas by the light of classic arts and letters. --J. A. Symonds (Encyc. Brit.).
