What change in attitude occured from middle ages to the renaissance according to burckhardt?
There are a number of periods of time referred to as "renaissances". If you are referring to the European renaissance of the 16th century, the baroque period followed it. The Harlem Renaissance occured during the 1920's in New York City. The time period following this Renaissance would be the 1930's which was marked by the Great Depression and World War II.
The Northern Renaissance in learning was marked by humanists such as Desiderius Erasmus. The art was influenced both by the Italian Renaissance and the printing press. Artists, such as Albrecht Durer, experienced great success from prints of biblical and allegorical subjects. Portraiture also became increasingly popular during the Northern Renaissance.
if you are talking about the magna carta in 1215, then no. it was only relative to england herself really. also, it was not even signed in the renaissance period. historical events such as reformation, counter reformation, sack of rome, constantinople falls, discovery of the "new world", first female english monarch, et cetera. there were many many major events you just need to narrow it down.
