Comments that need to be fixed[edit]

So, there are problems with this article

  • The lead is way too long, it should be four paragraphs
  • Then there looks to be uncited material such as
    • This ideology was referred to as the uomo universale, an ancient Greco-Roman ideal. Education during the Renaissance was mainly composed of ancient literature and history as it was thought that the classics provided moral instruction and an intensive understanding of human behavior.
    • Humanism and libraries section
    • Music section
    • In October 1517 Luther published the Ninety-five Theses, challenging papal authority and criticizing its perceived corruption, particularly with regard to instances of sold indulgences. The 95 Theses led to the Reformation, a break with the Roman Catholic Church that previously claimed hegemony in Western Europe. Humanism and the Renaissance therefore played a direct role in sparking the Reformation, as well as in many other contemporaneous religious debates and conflicts. Pope Paul III came to the papal throne (1534–1549) after the sack of Rome in 1527, with uncertainties prevalent in the Catholic Church following the Protestant Reformation. Nicolaus Copernicus dedicated De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres) to Paul III, who became the grandfather of Alessandro Farnese, who had paintings by Titian, Michelangelo, and Raphael, as well as an important collection of drawings, and who commissioned the masterpiece of Giulio Clovio, arguably the last major illuminated manuscript, the Farnese Hours.
  • A lot of the spread section

and many more. Though, if these are supported by general references then do tell me. If this receives no comments by monday I will open a GAR on this and possibly have it delisted from GA status. Onegreatjoke (talk) 19:07, 24 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'd leave it a bit longer than that. I can't see anything above is actually wrong. You, or anyone could pretty easily reference it. There are 142 refs as it is. Johnbod (talk) 19:10, 24 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Really? Luther nailing the 95 Theses to the church door needs a citation? XOR'easter (talk) 18:36, 26 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
