The split away from the Catholic Church


As Calvinism (and the other protestant movements) grew in numbers and power, the grip of Catholic Dogma allowed the questioning and investigation of world and universe to challenge the teaching of the the Catholic Church without fear of being dragged in front of religious courts or the inquisition as happened in Italy and Spain

This freedom allowed the Renaissance to develop in a more scientific/mathematical manner whilst Italian Renaissance was more restricted and blossomed in art (most of if religious art)
