In the last two days we looked at how the Renaissance moved to Northern Europe, particularly England, Germany, France, and Flanders. The northern humanists were critical of failure of the Christian Church to inspire people to live a Christian life. They were not totally accepting of the Church and aimed to reform society. Christian humanists as they were called, promoted the education of women and founded schools attended by both boys and girls. Italian artists left Italy in the late 15th Century because of war and began working throughout Europe incorporating their styles into European culture.
