    Well, during that period, art passed, stylistically, from High Renaissance classicizing idealism through the eccentric (and then somewhat dry and formulaic) Mannerist period and finally to the beginnings of the Baroque era, as represented in such artists as Caravaggio and Annibale Carracci.

    In addition, the 16th century saw the Roman Catholic Church's response to the Reformation, in the form of the Counter-Reformation. (Read up on it.)

    Another issue involved the development of early modern scientific interests, though more serious and rigorous scientific exploration would have to wait for the 17th century. See, for example, Giordano Bruno.
