It also popularized a theory of the ancient, Sarmatian heritage of Poland. It is not a coincidence that the fertile intellectual milieu of Cracow produced many outstanding scientists, political writers, and poets.

Among Polish students at the Cracow Academy was Nicholas Copernicus, who in his opus De revolutionibus orbium coelestium developed a new scientific theory of the universe.

His colleague and friend, Bernard Wapowski, a historian and cartographer, drafted the maps of the Polish and Ruthenian lands which appeared in the and editions of Ptolemy's Geography.

Marcin Kromer, the author of De origine et rebus gestis Polonorum libri III and Polonia written about described the historical development of Poland as well as its geography, nationalities, customs, and institutions. Andrzej Frycz Modrzewski, another prominent graduate of the Academy, advanced novel political and social theories concerning the whole state. Jan Kochanowski perfected Polish poetic language and became recognized as the most eminent Slavic poet until the beginning of the nineteenth century.

In the middle of the sixteenth century, a network of more than parish schools provided elementary education to Polish children. Young Poles, in general sons of the gentry and of the burghers, traveled abroad to complete their education, most often to Padua, Bologna, Rome, Louvain, Paris, Wittenberg, or Basel.

The university bonds were cultivated through personal contacts, official activities, and correspondence.

Members of the Polish intellectual elite, e. Through this exchange of ideas, Poland not only participated in major scientific and political developments but also propagated Western heritage and art among the East Slavic nations, especially in Byelorussia and Ukraine, from where they were transmitted to the Duchy of Muscovy.

The main incentive for the development of Renaissance art and architecture came from the royal court at Wawel. Crowned in King of Poland, Zygmunt launched an ambitious project of transforming the royal castle into a Renaissance residence.

The new palace, with slim columns and three levels of light galleries, built by Bartolommeo Berrecci from Florence, his compatriots, and local artists, became a model accomplishment of the Polish Renaissance. Inside, residential chambers and halls were embellished with ornamental wall paintings and large tapestries from Brussels, embroidered with gold.

A richly carved wooden ceiling in the Deputies Hall was decorated with one hundred and ninety four sculptures in the shape of human heads, an innovative idea which most likely originated with the King or his wife Bona Sforza of Italy, while the whole project was designed and carried out by Sebastian Tauerbach and his coworkers.

The sepulchar chapel , called Zygmunt's Chapel, another masterpiece of Berrecci, became the mausoleum for Zygmunt the Old and his son Zygmunt August. The two great patrons of the arts who made Wawel a truly royal residence rested there in the marble tombs, surrounded by figures of saints beneath the splendidly decorated gilded dome.

Magnates and wealthy burghers were also eager to display their artistic tastes and patronage.

Gesta Principum Polonorum

Foreign architects, sculptors, and craftsmen brought to Poland by King Zygmunt and Queen Bona were employed side by side with native artists to build and embellish castles, palaces, and manor houses throughout the country. Many designs imitated the arcaded courtyard and arched loggias of the Wawel palace. Cities and towns did not lag far behind. The Cloth Hall in Cracow Market Square was rebuilt in by Giovanni Maria Padovano, who constructed a raised decorative parapet along the top of its facades, a feature imitated in many buildings.

The Red Room in the Town Hall was decorated with wood carvings by Simon Hoerle, its ceiling embellished with more than twenty painted allegorical compositions by Isaac van den Blocke.

Other towns, some of them quite small, were also able to express the artistic aspirations of their inhabitants. The same artist was engaged in remodelling the Town Hall in Sandomierz. Kazimierz Dolny, the bustling center of the grain trade was enriched by twenty five ornate granaries along the Vistula.
