High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The terms Renaissance
man and, less commonly, homo universalis (Latin for "universal man"
or "man of the world") are related and used to describe a person
who is well educated or who excels in a wide variety of subjects or
fields. The idea developed in Renaissance Italy from the notion
expressed by one of its most accomplished representatives, Leon
Battista Alberti (1404-72): that "a man can do all things if he
will." It embodied the basic tenets of Renaissance Humanism which
considered man empowered, limitless in his capacities for
development, and led to the notion that people should embrace all
knowledge and develop their capacities as fully as possible. Thus
the gifted men of the Renaissance sought to develop skills in all
areas of knowledge, in physical development, in social
accomplishments and in the arts.
