Renaissance styles developed during the Eutpean Renaissance (c. 1400-1600). These were based on revived appreciation of the Roman architecture. These ideas spread throught Europe and versions of Renaissance styles developed in France, Spain, Northern Europe and the British Isles. American architects in the Victorian period based much of their work on these styles, some times faithfully coping the style and other times using them far more freely for the demands of American building needs.
