I have to write a short essay on whether or not the bubonic plague is a significant cause of the Renaissance.

Opinions? What do you think and why?

correlation =/= causation I think you can make a more powerful argument saying that it wasn't a significant cause.

I do too. I need reasons though, and I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts. My biggest argument is that the plague took place in the midst of the Renaissance (according to my teacher. I haven't looked into personally yet).

Yeah, it killed enough of the clergy to make it possible for people to experiment with chemicals and mechanics without being called wizards.

Well, there's the fact that laborers could charge more. Plus, innovations were made in medicine. The problem, though, is that the renaissance had started when the plague struck.

I had to do the same topic? What history are you in?

Yes, because:
-People valued life because they saw how it could end abruptly=leads to value on material world=secularism
-Decreased population=increased standard of living=money to patronize art
-Clergy did little to nothing to help the sick, people lost faith in Papacy.
