        2. Machiavelli

          Annotations:

          • He is important because he wrote a book about his ideas about how rulers should rule and I think many rulers use his idea to rule. I put him here because he had been observing the politics of Florence for a long time.
      2. Change

        • Change is important because many ideas and things changed during the Renaissance. I put it next to Renaissance because it is the main idea of this time.
        1. Rebirth of Classical Ideas

          Annotations:

                  1. Petrarch

                    Annotations:

                    • Petrarch is important because he is considered to be the founder of Italian Renaissance humanism. I put him here because I think I should separate him from other terms because he is really important. Although he was a poet, I still didn't put him with literature because I think literature is inspired by humanism, but he first started humanism, so maybe his work had nothing to do with this literature.
                    1. Literature

This book is considered the first modern medical textbook. I put him below da Vinci because they both studied the human body, but Vesalius is younger than da Vinci.
