The Renaissance ('rebirth'), like the Middle Ages and the Enlightenment, is a misconception in fake history or historiography (the writing of history) in the hands of elite families. The term was coined by Swiss historian Jacob Burkhardt. The term refers to the revival of Greek Hermeticism (cult of Mercury) in Florence Italy ruled by the banking family Medici's during the 15th and 16th century.

The biggest lies and misconception in the official narrative of human history are: the Big Bang Theory, Darwinist concept of evolution, Christopher Columbus, the bible as authentic document written in the era of Jesus Christ, Renaissance and  Enlightenment as progress towards more freedom and democracy.

Dante Alighieri, Petrarch described the period before him as the Dark Ages. Rumors were spread that Christians had burned the works of Greek poet Sappho (painted by Raphael in one of the Raphael rooms).

Venetian printer Aldus Manutius printed Greek texts. In Venice the commedia dell'arte based on Kabbalistc archetypes, gained popularity. Pico della Mirandola fused Christianity with Kabbalism.

Giorgio Vasari coined the term Gothic (barbarian Goths). The 1400s was the era of the Black Plague, attacks of the Ottomans and the Hussite Wars of reformer Jan Hus. During the crusades Europe was backwards in comparison to the Arab world. The renaissance represented the revival of ancient Greece and Rome as a Golden Age, promised in the Book of Revelation.

According to the mainstream narrative of the renaissance, the fall of Constantinople led to the rediscovery of classics of Ancient Greece (Greek scholars like John Agrypoulos) and resurgence of science in Italy and Europe, leading to more open-mindedness, progress and tolerance (doctrine of the Left Wing Church), while art and science was controlled by the Catholic and Protestant (Luciferian) Church before and after the Renaissance.

In 1439 John Palaiologos (double-headed eagle emblem) visited Council of Florence with Gemisthos Plethon and pope Nicholas V, sequel of a council convoked by Martin V Colonna. Nicholas V promoted 'humanism', profited from the Portugese slave trade and created rituals of burning witches and the Vatican library. Sixtus IV ordered propaganda for the Sixtine Chapel.

Domenican Giraloma Savonarola (de Mirandola and Boticelli as follower) became popular as a reaction on decadence of Medici's, with millenialist preachings based on the Book of Revelation with Florence as New Jerusalem. He was excommunicated by Alexander IV Borgia.  Renaissance art eventually degraded to Mannerism (Pontormo, Parmigianino, Bronzino) and Rococo.

Although the periods after the renaissance are pictured as increasingly rational and 'progressive', the biggest witch trials took place during the Scientific Revolution.
