That’s why we’ve invested significant time and effort into making a comprehensive series of “History of Ink” articles. In the 21st century it is difficult to appreciate how much printing is an accepted part of our everyday lives. Look around you, if you are sat at home you likely have a book or magazine that’s been printed and mass produced; five hundred years ago this type of print would be beyond comprehension, bordering on witchcraft! The Beginning Of Printing Our history begins with ancient cultures using ink for writing and drawing. Prehistoric Europe: In Europe this time period is known as ‘prehistoric’ or a time before written evidence. The Middle East: The Islamic Empires used a writing instrument called a galam which was usually made from a reed. Ancient Egypt: China:

Shakespeare's Romans: Politics and Ethics in Julius Caesar and Coriolanus: Digital Collections for the Classroom When William Shakespeare first staged his Roman tragedies Julius Caesar (1599) and Coriolanus (c. 1608), he did not introduce his audience to new stories. Rather, he reworked characters and events with which most of his audience would have been familiar. For many people in Renaissance England, the ancient Roman republic did not seem remote or exotic. Instead, it served as an important precedent in politics and history, one which had bearing on events and people in Britain. The similarities between seventeenth-century England and classical Rome may not be obvious to twenty-first-century readers. For many people in Renaissance England, the ancient Roman republic did not seem remote or exotic. Yet these differences in political structure are not quite as firm as they appear.

The Renaissance : Dawn of a New Age - About 1450, European scholars became more interested in studying the world around them. At the same time, European artists produced work that was more true to life. And European ships set sail to explore new lands. This new age in Europe was eventually called “the Renaissance”, a French word that means “rebirth.” The Renaissance began in northern Italy and then spread over the next century through Europe. Italian cities such as Naples, Genoa, and Venice became centers of trade between Europe and the Middle East. advertisement Foreign trade made many Italian merchant families wealthy. In AD324, the Roman Empire was under attack, so Emperor Constantine moved his capital 850 miles east to Byzantium, a Greek-speaking city he renamed Constantinople.

These 8 Italian Artists Set the Renaissance in Motion While Leonardo argued for the superiority of painting in both his artwork and writing, the younger virtuoso Michelangelo (born Michelangelo Buonarroti) claimed that sculpture was the supreme art. Their rivalry was part of the ongoing Renaissance debate of paragone, which asked what the ultimate form of art was: painting or sculpture. Like Leonardo, Michelangelo was a polymath, an exceptional talent in many fields. Yet although he redesigned the architecture of St. Peter’s Basilica and arduously painted the revered frescoes in the Sistine Chapel (including the iconic Creation of Adam, 1508–12), Michelangelo considered himself first and foremost a sculptor. No work encapsulates his so-called divine gifts or ambition so much as the colossal David (1501–04).
