"Renaissance" is defined as the period of "rebirth" throughout Europe in the 15th century. Starting in Italy, the ideals of this period spread through the rest of Europe, including to Germany, where many artists, scientists, and thinkers were influenced by Italian Renaissance men. These regions, once defined by two dominant points of feudalism and of the Church, was becoming more defined by the more broad spectrum of people living within the countries. Feudalism, a term first used in the early modern period (17th century in its most classic sense refers to a Medieval Europe Political system composed Germany was inevitably affected by this mass spread of renaissance thinking from Italy.
The biggest idea that spread was humanism.

Even during the great turning points of the Renaissance, it can be seen how those areas (such as Germany) not under some type of Roman hold, flourished under feudalism. The Roman Empire was the post-Republican phase of the ancient Roman civilization, characterised by an autocratic form of government and large territorial Just like the spread of renaissance thinking, feudalism spread from France, Spain, and Italy to Germany.

One thing to remember is this transition back to classical learning did not happen in a few years, the transition itself took over a century to occur within Germany.
