Humanists tended to focus on more worldly subjects.

Renaissance scholars were called humanists because they were less concerned about mysteries of heaven and more interested in the world and humans around them. Page 303 in the world and its people Glencoe Green book

They are called Humanists because they made people see the world differently and opened peoples eyes to a greater and broader view or the world. They supported the cultural change

They wanted their scholars to convince others to follow a path of virtue and wisdom.

Humanists studied subjects such as grammar, rhetoric, poetry and history.

Not exactly. Since most humanists believe in ethics and in studying the wisdom of the greatest philosophers and scholars, rather than in a Bible or in a supernatural God, it would not be accurate to say they "worship." However, humanists often get together for programs, presentations, and conferences, as well as to work together on issues that they believe will better the society. Humanists also participate in organizations, such as the American Humanist Association or the Society for Secular Humanism. And while they may not go to a church or a temple (although some Unitarians are also Humanists, and some Jews are too), they do keep in touch with like-minded members (they even have their own magazines); and they also have their own unique ceremonies to reinforce the cohesion of their group. I enclose a link to the American Humanist Association, so you can learn more about what humanists believe.

Like Italian humanists, northern European humanist scholars stressed education and a revival of classical learning. At the same time, however, they emphasized religious themes. They believed the revival of ancient leaning should be used to bring about religious and moral reform.

Humanists believed that through education, people could better themselves and as an end result make society better.

Humanist scholars influenced more than just literature. With their independent thinking, they began to challenge long-accepted traditions, assumptions and institutions. As they made all sorts of unsettling discoveries, it further validated their desire to challenge and question nearly every thing.

I beleive that renaissance shcolars differed from medieval scholars because of simply the time era, medieval time was after the crusades, in which catholics destroyed vast amounts of book not containg direct beleif to god, which burned the knowledge of those peoples next few gerations. but im new to this and thats off the top of my noggin seems logical.

how did renassance scholars differ from those of medieval scholars

They were concerned with turning to the material and physical world for answers instead of spirituality so much. It was also a time of the importance of educating people and so school became more important while scholars of this time were concerned with making a more "universal person."

The scholars who devoted themselves to the study of ancient Roman texts in Latin and ancient Greek texts were the humanists. The father of humanism was Petrarch who advocated the study of Latin literature and rhetoric. He lived in the 14th century, before the beginning of the Renaissance. Originally the humanists only studied Roman texts as no one could read Greek and knowledge of Greek works had been lost. The learning of ancient Greek and ancient Greek texts followed the fall of Constantinople in 1453. Many Greek scholars went to Italy, taught Greek and the study of Greek texts. The main effect of this was the revival of ancient Greek philosophy.

The Renaissance was a long period that was dominated by a passion for returning to pre-Christian philosophies, languages, and thought. The early Humanists rejected the Scholastics and their whole school of though. They rejected Aristotle's idea that man was a "rational animal", the humanists venerated the imagination as highly as the analytic faculty, emphasizing rhetoric - the art of persuasion and poetry to move the heart rejecting the Scholastics "sterile attempts at definition". Thus the humanists adopted Plato and learned Greek, they re-examined the Scriptures through methods of literary analysis: the precise meaning of words, metaphors, and other poetic qualities. Although most of the first humanists remained believing Catholics, the movement inevitably led away from Christianity, and the scholastics were very suspicious of the entire movement from the beginning. This deifying of ancient pagan culture and philosophy weakened the logic of Christianity eventually giving rise to the protestant heresy and nearly simultaneously to secularism which rejected God in toto, much less Christianity. This was the thinking that turned the great Age of Faith into the Dark Ages as people turned against the Church and Christ rejected the immense faith and learning of the great Catholic scholars of that period.

Before the year 1000, the medieval scholars were concerned with Y1K. Afterwards they all got drunk and forgot about it for the next 997 years.

After the fall of the Roman Empire, classical Greek plays and literature were preserved only in the Byzantine Empire. However, starting around 1500, printed copies of the works of Seneca, Sophocles, Euripides, Aristophanes and others were available but only in their original languages. For the next 40 years, scholars and humanists worked at translating the tragedies.

How does what differ? This question needs to be rewritten.

They did traveled to Europe and tought them everything they knew

In the Medieval Era the only people who were educated enough to read were royalty, priests, and scholars. There was no way to produce mass books then and that kept the common people illiterate.

Humanism was an intellectual movement. It claimed that people , i.e. human beings can achieve many things for themselves by the cultivation of their own individual nature, as opposing to the religous dogma. For the first time these ideas appeared in the 15th century, alongside with the Renaissance, in Italy. Humanists originally were Christian scholars who studied humanities -grammar, phylosophy, rhetoric, and history - rediscovered Latin , ancient Greek and Hebrew writings. The invention of printing made it possible to spread their ideas throughout Europe.

It means history concerning the period of the Middle Ages. - Most European scholars consider "Middle Ages" from the Norman conquest of England (1066 ) to about 1485. American scholars see it as from 500 Ad to 1500 Ad.
