Question and answer
What does this painting demonstrate about the Catholic Church's role in the Enlightenment? Much of Enlightenment artwork satirized the Church's old-fashioned ideals. The Church lost much of its
power as religious freedom began to spread through Europe. The Church hoped to maintain influence by supporting Baroque art with religious themes. Religious themes were being replaced by ideas stemming from the Enlightenment.
In the 14th and 15th century there emerged in Italy and France a group of thinkers known as the "humanists." The painter, the architect, the musician, and the scholar, by exercising their intellectual powers, were fulfilling divine purposes. [ The painter, the architect, the musician, and the scholar, by exercising their intellectual powers, were fulfilling divine purposes. The Church, and most
particularly the Holy Inquisition, objected that the Bible clearly stated that the sun moved through the sky and denounced Galileo's teachings, forcing him to recant (take back) what he had written and preventing him from teaching further. Thanks! ]

How did the attitude toward classical texts during the Renaissance influence the later Scientific Revolution?
Weegy: By using the word in a somewhat broader sense, we may define the Renaissance as the reentrance into the world of that secular, inquiring, self-reliant spirit which characterized the life and culture of classical antiquity. [ This is simply to say that under the influence of the intellectual revival the men of Western Europe came to think and feel, to look upon life and the outer world, as did the men of ancient Greece and Rome; and this again is merely to say that they ceased to think and feel as mediaeval men and began to think and feel as modern men. ] (More)
