I need help with determining which one, out of the three interpretations of the Renaissance is the most reasonable
1. Renaissance was a rebirth of ideas after centuries of cultural stagnation. New way of understanding the world had emerged and it looked back to ancient Greece and Rome for inspiration, and was distinctive and superior to the immediate past.
2. Never lost sight of its Classical roots. Shift in education and cultural emphasis than rediscovery of antiquity. It also noted that the Renaissance had at least two phases the Early Renaissance and the High and each were different
3. Renaissance label should be used in cautiously and only to describe what was happening in learning and the arts, not in politics and society
I vote for # 1.
