2.0 Introduction

The classical civilization of ancient Greece and Rome was not forgotten by the Europeans either during the Middle Age or in the Dark Age. The ancient languages were used in church services; for example Latin was used in the west and Greek in the east. Ancient architecture was used as a model for Romanesque construction.

However, between the 14th and the 17th centuries, the classical Greece-Roman civilization was rediscovered in a new and fruitful manner.
