During the Middle Ages (with all the plagues, wars, etc), "religion" and the idea of God and divine intervention took a very dark turn. Because of all the suffering, we started to believe we were so depraved and sinful we were hardly worth existing and the World in general was full of nothing but pain and suffering. Some folks took a different view - that man was valuable and intelligent and human nature was better than what the Middle Ages would have them believe. Man and the world were worthy of study. So, that is what they did - started looking into the worth and value of man, the study of strong successful civilizations like the Greeks and Romans. Renaissance "humanism" is as just described. There are myriad uses of the word today with very different implications - even religious humanism and secular humanism.
