Expert's answer

The Roman Catholic Church’s prohibition of art and various disciplines in the medieval ages remarkably contributed to the Renaissance, characterized by social change such as resurgence of art and philosophy, world exploration, the rebirth of science and establishment of earlier versions of universities. The church had firm control of education, prohibited philosophy and science studies and commissioned most artwork. If the church had supported university education as well as broadened its scope beyond monastic and cathedral schools, there would not have been such a thirst for learning in late medieval Europe. The Bible would already have been disseminated in other languages besides Latin. Education would have increased social mobility thus favoring exploration and geographical discoveries. Classical art would already have made a mark in the medieval ages if the church had promoted artists. Scholars would already have attained notable philosophical development and impactful scientific discoveries if they had not been persecuted by the church.
