The Renaissance in France
By Sharon Fabian
  

1     Francois I could be called the King of the Renaissance in France. Although the Renaissance had begun and spread to France before the reign of Francois I, he was the king who became a great patron of the arts. During his reign, French Renaissance culture blossomed.
 
2     King Francois I even brought Leonardo da Vinci from Italy to France. He also encouraged French writers and artists to develop their own talents. Some of the most famous authors, painters, architects, and sculptors of the Renaissance in France produced their best works during the reign of Francois I.
 
3     Francois Rabelais was a Franciscan monk for years, but then he became interested in the new ideas of Renaissance Humanism. He left the Franciscans and entered medical school. Later, he made another big career change; he became a writer. His books, which told stories about two fantastic giants, were funny and serious at the same time. They expressed his new Humanist ideas about philosophy, politics, and even education.
