The Renaissance (or re-birth) was the reconstruction and modernization of France. The reason of this event was because Europe wanted to leave their economic depression and experience financial growth.
During this time many philosophers questioned the importance of the Roman Catholic Church, who ruled the Country politically, and contributed to the creation of the concept of humanism.
Humanism during the Renaissance helped men abolish the feudal structures in France (those that were imposed by the religious orthodox). Instead of Frances citizens having a religious outlook, they began to have a more open outlook on life with an intellectual source of knowledge.
From this, the Renaissance underlined the importance of city-states, national languages, new spiritual and scholar knowledge, and ultimately destroyed the old feudal system to create a less religiously centred government.
