97 Words1 Page
In the Early Renaissance, humanism became a popular ideology, originating in France and spreading throughout Europe. As this concept spread, it inspired many philosophers including Dante, Petrarch and Boccaccio. Dante was the first of these writers to apply humanistic concepts to his work, which later influenced Petrarch. Petrarch did not use Dante’s work as a source of inspiration, but expressed his admiration towards his lover in the same manner as Dante. In comparison, Boccaccio was inspired by Petrarch, because after being criticized for his faith, Petrarch reassured him in saying that there are alternatives to achieving heaven.
