The Renaissance began in Italy at about the beginning of the

14th century and lasted until the 17th century. We might use the

dates 1300 to 1600, but there are many suggestions on how to date

the time. I have seen beginning dates ranging from 1295 to 1400,

and the dates for the end of the Renaissance seem even more

difficult to pin down.

It is probably good to note that the Middle Ages and the

Renaissance overlap.
