Famous Renaissance Men

What roles did men play during the Renaissance?

In the actual Renaissance period, men who were educated aspired to become Renaissance men. They were
expected to know several languages, understand philosophy and scientific teachings, appreciate literature and
art, and further, to be deft sportsmen. Such emphasis was inspired by earlier periods, and for the first time,
scholars had access to many of the Greek philosophers and writers whose work had been lost for centuries.
Further, becoming a renaissance man was clearly an extension of the earlier knights and courtiers who
became educated during the Middle Ages.
