In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.
"Humanism is a concept that was more realized than discovered during the Renaissance era (cultural awakening) in Europe during the fourteenth century. Since then, it has developed in the way we look at, not only the arts and architecture, but also the way we view religion. It helps incorporate ideas and ethics of human action to how we focus on the belief, values, and morals we derive from religion. If anything, humanism has helped the spiritual form of religion to grow. However, it is not in any way, shape, or form limited to people who have an expressed religion, for it may also pertain to those who claim that they are of a different persuasion, such as Atheist."
