“A New Era” After a long period with the absence of Roman art and little development being made, we left the dark ages and entered into the early Renaissance. The birth of the Renaissance revolved around the idea of building onto the principles that the early Romans left off at. By going back to our foundations, we were able to take art and culture to where it had never gone before. In our own lives, it is easy to get stuck doing something that is not at our core. Meditating on who we are fundamentally called to be will awaken a rebirth within us as we begin to see our true passions and callings entering the light.
