"...we must recognize that there eventually came a change which does merit the name Renaissance. But we should realize that it was not the rebirth of man; it was the rebirth of an idea about man. There was a change in thinking about man, a change which put man himself in the center of all things,...The word Renaissance, taken to mean 'rebirth,' has less obvious meaning if applied at this time to political, economic, or social history, although changes of mentality do have an impact in all areas of life. But even where the word can be used without qualification, it should not be taken to imply that every aspect of the rebirth was a gain for mankind."
~Dr. Francis Schaeffer, How Should We Then Live?
