The heightened hope that redemption was approaching led to the advent of a mystical Messiah in the person of Shabbetai Tzevi (1626-76). World Humanist Day is a great excuse for a party. So, may I ask, have we become better off since we've pushed God out of our lives? It is customary to begin the history of Humanism with Dante (1265-1321), and Petrarch (1304-74).

Ancient India was devoured by a too overpowering sense of the One. The most diligent collector of inscriptions, coins, gems, and medals was the merchant Ciriaco of Ancona. The idea of Ahura Mazda as a non-intervening deistic divine God/Grand Architect of the universe tied with a unique eschatology and ethical system implying that each person is held morally responsible for their choices, made freely in this present life, in the afterlife. [21] The importance placed on thought, action, responsibility, and a non-intervening creator was appealed to by, and inspired a number of, Enlightenment humanist thinkers in Europe such as Voltaire and Montesquieu.

Willibald Pirckheimer was also a supporter of Luther's for some years, but before his death in 1520 returned to his former faith. The Germanic Biedermeier style of Romantic realism - a comforting domestic idiom popular in Germany, Austria and Denmark, not unlike the seventeenth century Dutch Realism School - is discussed in German Art, 19th Century. Still, it is a brilliant, clear, succinct document of where humanism had evolved to at that time.

At the risk of getting a swelled head from citing myself, but in the interests of not answering the same question twice a week, I'll direct you to John Colagioia's answer to What is the best answer to "if feminism is about equality of the sexes, then why isn't it called 'equalism' or something like that?"
