Portuguese language and literature in Rennaissance: the life and work of the humanist Pedro Sanches

Author (s)

Abstract

The Portuguese Rennaissance is truly connected with the ancient classics in language and literature. Many humanists in Portugal began a large movement that wanted to understand the ancient Greek and Latin writers and to bring to the Rennaissance their toughts and words. Portugal opened the doors to European humanists and the new ideas entered the Portuguese culture. One of the humanists that came to Portugal was Pedro Sanches, who worked in the royal palace and is an example of a true humanist in his life and work. His texts and deeds reveal a profound knowledge of the ancient classics, enlighted by the Rennaissance way of thinking, leaving behind the Middle Ages and building a new man for a new world.

Key words: Portuguese Rennaissance, Language and Literature, Ancient classics, Humanism, Pedro Sanches.
