The Renaissance saw the start of a redefinition of education, called the 'studia humanitatis' (the humanities). This was a broad education, which included instruction in grammar, rhetoric, history, moral philosophy and poetry. The goal was to create well-rounded individuals, better capable of executing their civic duties.
