7:19 pm
inventor. mm. for the brilliant creator of the mona lisa painting was perhaps just a necessary evil. ah, me, a 15 paintings are attributed to leonardo to day. most have been lost because he was constantly experimenting with new paint mixes, many of which decomposed over tell him he kid more about his inventions than he did about painting deal not of off the license bus, assign enestus when it came to his innermost desires. leonardo was a seeker, an explorer window, some one who was interested in new ideas, mystery, highly fit, and rather than a painter who laboriously tended to his craft every day. brush stroke. after a brush stroke, gleason hunter tuck, i thought i was at the police board. the reason we know that he sometimes made just minor corrections to a painting and that he wasn't in front of

a canvas all the time. i think that's an extended and maybe he just painted to make a livingston as my, his paintings were in great demand. after all. that had been the one of the egg of cock yvonne. they were extremely well done. i think for at least those that he finished before the inevitable will die. maybe he just painted to earn the money he needed to have the freedom he needed to pursue his scientific research. think only for i had some problems. i maybe since off the can portals with time. in the 15th century, italy was ravaged by numerous conflicts, venice defeated, padua and florence conquered pisa in 14 o. 5. in 1413, the neapolitan attacked rome. in 1444, florence went to war against both naples and venice. the italian cities had an insatiable appetite for conquest, but they constant battles field progress. whoa had become the promoter of aunt
7:21 pm
creek and of in a sole sneak nora. they got the veils. war didn't just have negative effects and the renaissance in the only kid ensured that huge sums of money were mobilized to the conduct deity. the military contractors came out the line and said they were often based in small cities or towns from where they waged the wars of the big players for big money on my lunch. i was in the office all that meant well from florence, milan, naples, venice and rome flowed into smaller places, exploit under fingers toward the side of if you go to italy and enjoy the beauty and diversity of these small towns, you get an idea of what it meant back then to turn war an iron into gold and gold, into art quotes from the school schools. milan in 1485 new nato. his employer was loaded because salsa, who ruled the city state. you know, to apply to word for him as a military engineer and maker of weapons only mentioning his painting and sculpture
7:22 pm
in passing. that if he co had great expansion plans and was reading himself full wool. and suddenly another ended up building high tech weapons for the sports us inspired by and t booty, he combined the idea of an enclosed chariot with a tortoise formation used by the roman legions in siege warfare. it was supposed to be an ahmed vehicle with incredible fire power, but it failed in practice. it was too heavy to move easily and the steam engine hadn't yet been invented. the codecs atlantic has contains more than a 1000 pages with sketches by leonardo. he designed to perpetual motion machine, a gearbox and vehicles powered by springs. but many of his creations still puzzled us even now.
7:23 pm
ah some think this cock device was a mechanical calculator, although critics say that interpretation goes a step too far in the renaissance. there was no way of actually constructing a mechanical beatrice like this. of course, you not a knew that, but that didn't stop his theoretical innovations, and some of them were groundbreaking. ah, you not as love of mechanics, chimed with the spirit of the tines. like him? many pioneering minds was searching for machines that might save people. the earth and the universe in motion clocks were the most mechanically elaborate devices of lou not as time. ready when paisa hinline invented his pocket watch in the early 16th century, people started believing themselves the masters of tolling. but those who and money
7:24 pm
with time by loaning money for set periods while charging interest were committing a mortal sin. ready ready tine still belonged to god alone with her boyfriends and from him stating that the prohibition on charging interest is in the christian bible consists. it's one of the really important biblical prohibitions almost as important as thou shalt not kill and with that's because people believed that humans shouldn't profit from time because time belonged to god . it worked good. but in the late middle ages and the renaissance, the economy had come to play a totally different role. money had to be available in the economy and making money and time available was beneficial. would you say? so you had to make it worth your while site and full time dean one good to be of. as a result, there were more and more ways of getting around the ban on charging interest in practice and from groomed us since for board fucked to shore sockets. was it the
7:25 pm
imperial decrees of the 16th century now allowed christian money lenders to charge a maximum of 5 percent interest on money loaned until then the credit industry had been solely in the hands of jewish money lenders . this now changed martin luther still denounced the practice of charging interest, but the swiss reformer john kelvin, had quite a different opinion. durham is code leaning from your fortune i was come. and madam calvin said that people could determine from their economic success, whether they were predestined to salvation or damnation route. so that meant people didn't just sit around to see whether they would be chosen with group architect. they worked incredibly hard on me, so i'm on the great, so see ologist, mox vega said that calvinism was the father of capitalism. his arc dec. i live in this most is deaf, hottest cup in tennessee,
7:26 pm
but we know that other religious movements of the 16th and 17th centuries did just as much to spur the economy for you to put evo traffic to tom. hm. it was really the overall forces in society at the time, along with technical developments that led to the incredible economic boom out through one peak orientation. different entry chrome the city of zurich started setting up the official currency exchanges. in 1419 the money changes tended to be goldsmiths or coin mentors because they had to be able to tell the value of the coins. they changed currencies and they also made loans. lacey with this thing, leon and calvin is traditions. switzerland became a banking pioneer. and affluence became a symbol of divine favor. measuring time is still inseparably tied to exploring the heavens. renaissance thinkers had already
7:27 pm
set their sights on the stars. many medieval time pieces were astronomical clocks. the exact measurement of time is a necessary requirement for studying the motion of the sun, moon, and planets. ah, it was the start of an age in which scone is began to challenge the church as wold view. saying that the sun didn't revolve around the earth. and the earth was not the center of the universe from bulk in poland, in around 1514 nicholas, copernicus was a cannon at the cathedral there as well as a high ranking government official. he was also a lawyer, physician, and mathematician, as well as an economist who wrote a highly regarded work on the theory of money. but his real passion was astronomy. his astronomical observations and calculations contradicted the generally accepted
7:28 pm
muddle originally posited by the ancient scholar claudius ptolemy. namely that the earth was at the center of the solar system. this geocentric world view was essential teaching of the church. copernicus believed the son was at the center of the solar system. but even though he spent 30 years working on his theory, he kept quiet about it. his friends and confidence, including some high ranking clerics, tried to persuade him to publish his work, but without success. coupon nicholas had it in the pad, it was announced, copernicus was scared of publishing his theory because he was afraid he would make himself a laughing stock was shown. did you build an educated people knew that the earth wasn't flat as any, but it was a sphere i will normally go publicly in, copernicus is world view the this sphere was also moving for you. me ox! its spun on its own axis and also orbit at the sun at high speed. in this case on the sun, people believe that this would have unforeseeable consequences. even if the earth
7:29 pm
would be subjected to strong headway as a yeah. and objects would tip over blast and things like that gauged and, and then there was the theological aspect that martin luther threw into the mix t norbish aspect and martin luther, he told copernicus that the bible said that the son moved around the earth machine and not the other way around. so copernicus was wrong and that scared copernicus into keeping quiet, most unsanitary as it were hope to hear from jim martin luther cold, copernicus, a fool. and his money was dismissed. not so much as heretical, but morris fantastical. it was only 70 years after his death that galileo observations provided, convincing arguments. but the physical proof had to wait for another 300 years. nevertheless, nicholas, copernicus, had provided the astronomical model of our solar system and refuted the ancient scholar ptolemy. and that in itself was revolutionary.
7:30 pm
ah, the earth was ultimately removed from the center of the universe and classified as an ordinary planet that over to the sun, along with others. copernicus saw how the apparent motion of the stars in the night sky was really the result of the earth's own rotation. ready everything over to the sun, so the actual center of the solar system had to be near it. hardly any other discovery has had such great influence on our time. our voyage to the stellar's began 500 years ago. without copernicus, they would be no space, flight or satellite communication systems. and our lives today would be very different. phones heard who had the indigo from cooper the calculations performed by copernicus have had a real impact on us today. on shins,
7:31 pm
we sent our space ships into space knowing where the planets worth. if ptolemy world view had been correct, we would have reached none of those planets of men in it. all would have been a waste of time this very alice micro latoya truly. the advent of the cross staff, also known as jacob stuff made it possible to determine latitude at sea using astronomical calculations. this breakthrough in marathon technology made it possible to navigate on the high seas. a further achievement came with the f, a mary these astronomical tables calculated by the german astronomer and mathematician. johan, his milan, who was also known as league, jo, montana's, his tables recorded the location of celestial bodies from 147521506. together with the jacob stuff, they guided sailors on their journeys hydra,
7:32 pm
montana's hot, adama, xavier, montana's made people in europe aware of trigonometry. he published his own work, he taking advantage of the new invention of printing. oak touched the gutenberg and venture, the printing press arguments, took fishnet. i felt trigonometry is still central to navigational calculation to lose and to gps receivers around the world and i'm in yada and thing i didn't didn't icon for trigonometry was the key to navigation. and the search for new trade routes emboldened the explorers of the renaissance, besought new sources of well people started pondering completely new questions. what lies beyond the known world? and how can we get there? europe's merchants realised that it was cheaper to bring large quantities of pepper cinnamon and soaked to europe by the portuguese shipping ruth's men,
7:33 pm
to transport them along the overland route, controlled by venice that led to the collapse of the venetian spice monopoly. many trading establishments of the renaissance invested in shipping portugal and spain became leading trading nations. i'm from the conflict. european merchants wanted to get their hands on exotic, luxurious and beautiful things, and sell them for as much profit as possible to keep this duly. these things could be found in the mediterranean, and especially in the far east was will msd call floating. and so merchants like marco polo set off to search for spices and silk and incense and other luxury products cited by how handling the looks of school when they traveled the world and flew into me. so they were followed by missionaries and sometimes by warriors. some
7:34 pm
common and then came the artists, thinkers and explorers. so they all fueled each other, hoping to transcend their own horizons. monday, i know it's 123 bush lisben in 14 ac fool. 33 year old christopher columbus was just always away from his life's dream. coming true. he had an audience with the portuguese king john the 2nd. columbus was a professional seafaring from genoa, with profound knowledge of mathematics and kentucky, and a passionate defender of aristotle's belief that asia could be reached in just a few days by sailing west from europe. the ancient scholars had estimated that europe and asia covered roughly half of the earth circumference, but columbus believed that eurasia was much bigger than that. in fact, eurasia only makes up around a 3rd. mm. columbus
7:35 pm
also believed the earth was very much smaller than it really is. only half its actual size. he thought the western re, to china and india was 4500 kilometers long, a challenging voyage, but a manageable one. in actual fact, it's a journey of 20000 kilometers far beyond the capabilities of his telling me. so columbus was not only taking a risk, but also a miscalculated one. king john's advisors suspected columbus was mistaken and refused to give him financial support. he only received it 8 years later, from the spanish king ferdinand the 2nd. ah, after 6 weeks at sea, on the 12th of october, $1492.00 columbus made land full in the bahamas and then went on to cuba and he
7:36 pm
spun yona. he still believed he had found the western route to asia and that his spun, you'll know, was the chinese coast in his records, he promised the spanish crown as much gold as it needed, and as many slaves as it awful. columbus had discovered the de wold and plunged it into catastrophe as a gloom with 1st front is shipping to fuel your deposit soon. columbus was good at navigating ships through difficult waters, but he was a very poor manager of luck. he wasn't able to keep his all men together and ultimately spanish crown took away his powers. a hot do sign in big room. this was winning unfroze. america was already populated when he discovered it. so it wasn't a real discovery in that sense, but, but his arrival opened the door to unprecedented disasters to you and talk it through the millions of indigenous people, died at the hands of the germs that the europeans brought with them yielding for
7:37 pm
india gain. and when the european explorers were interested in gold on and yet more gold quote, a little bit in god, but more so in spices cited eyes from columbus is voyages opened up the newly discovered lands to foreign conquests and brought disaster to their indigenous populations. ma hi, dick flung its side in economic right until his death. columbus believed that he had found the see routed to the chinese mainland. but his discovery, none the less changed the world. spain and portugal became imperial super palace. columbus thus was also the 1st and a line of cruel congress. what drove him? alas for adventure, the promise of palo wealth will fain cologne was wrong. so i mean sheer o columbus was definitely someone who wanted fame and fortune over,
7:38 pm
but he was also a very devout person. he'd see at the house. oh, he thought he was helping countless individuals by bringing their souls to the christian faith. sadler was seen of him, but there are many indications that he might have believed that at the end of the 15th century, the world was nearing its end by the processing free light. so cal, missing in space from sidney owned at this margin. she often so as was so often the case that the rational considerations and desire for profit and fame were mixed with medieval motivation. ccbh table of times, i don't want you to be fine bombing the renaissance had 2 sides to eddie and his also. and so to did columbus could was even well thanks to the discoveries and discoverers, king charles, the 1st of spain established an empire on which the sun never set alongside large parts of europe. it included colonial territories and north and
7:39 pm
south america. and in asia, when the sun went down in mexico, it was already day in the philippines. in 15, ceci, the pope crowned him holy roman emperor charles. the 1st became charles the 5th. he saw himself as a universal monarch, defender of the faith appointed by god. he issued several decrees in an attempt to counter at the enslavement of the indigenous population. and in 1540 he even ordered their liberation but the colonies were far away and in the end, charles's need for gold was too great. charles's empire was greedy for silver and gold. between 154115. $6067.00 tons of gold and $480.00 tons of silver reached spain and triggered
7:40 pm

dogwood forgot also made money with the fear of hell. it's terrible. torments were omnipresent in full time. the church preached that it had been granted divine powers of remittance to reduce the punishment people would have to suffer for their sins. but this indulgence, as it was called, didn't come for free. as soon as a coin in the box does ring the soul from purgatory, the spring, these were the words of the dominican fry johan tete so. one of the most notorious sellers of indulgences. he even sold indulgences for blasphemy and murder. in the autumn of $1511.00, the 28 year old augustinian fry and martin luther was in rome. he too was seeking indulgence. he climbed the sacred stairs in front of the latter and on his knees to obtain forgiveness for his sins and to free his deceased relatives from purgatory.

7:50 pm
and a lost judgment that depicts the heavenly host as naked as the gods of mountain olympus . it was a courageous work of genius made possible only thanks to his paper patron, grim canopy. we wouldn't have st. peter's, we wouldn't have all this wonderful art in rome. we wouldn't have many pieces of music if these renaissance popes hadn't existed. renaissance hopes are ambivalent, like the whole of modernity. lindsay, they have admirably good trades and they also behaved like princes, like machiavelli, unrestrained and confident. and sometimes they put their responsibilities to the church on the back burner, or even forgot about them altogether. mark wickersham, in order for life to go for it. pet julius the 2nd oh, in tugee plan. as the romans called him, the architect at his side was donato bermonte,

7:54 pm
but even this, when his son's masterpiece was funded by the fear, christians had of eternal torment in hell. it was pope leo, the 10th who supported the cell of indulgences to fund the new building. martin luther was a pole by the moral decline. he believed in counted in rome for luther. this was a transformative experience and he mentioned it frequently in his nature, writings and speeches. he fascinated against the trade in indulgences which he saw as synonymous with the moral decline and greed of the church and its post. this marked the birth of what would go down in history as the reformation. luther wasn't a revolutionary but a reformer, a simple friar who defied the emperor and the pope and split the church just 2
7:55 pm
generations after luther europe would be shaken by a conflict more vicious than any that had gone before the 30 years war. the fighting between catholics and protestants devastated the empire. martin luther publicly condemned the practice of selling indulgences and his $95.00 theses in just a few months more than a sea of luther's treatises and collections were published, which were eventually reprinted in more than $600.00 editions. luther became a media star and the printed word. the 1st mass medium in history. escape became another format. so there wouldn't have been a reformation without the mass media of the 16th century. martin martin luther wrote vcs about a relatively abstruse theological problem. he indulgences in, but these species spread all over southern germany and just a few weeks of them impact of give them direct or true home for. it was printing.

had understood their own world. the renaissance was a plea against closed mines and the cult of experts. it gave room to intellectual curiosity and the courage to set forth on new paths. it's a story of people who did not wish to believe, but to know and to accepted no limits to their quest. ah, m keeping an eye on grandma, china seniors are well monitored by robots. but are they also well taken care of?
