Abstract: During the Portuguese Rennaissance, humanists became the strongest guideline for culture and ideas, from the ancient greeks and romans to the modern authors. The studies about language and literature were closely connected to the classics as they were role models to follow. But the new ideas that were coming from Europe gave birth to a huge discussion about the new man that Rennaissance needed, leaving behind the Middle Ages. Pedro Sanches is an example of a Portuguese humanist who crossed classic language and culture with the new European ideas, exchanging them with other Portuguese humanists, building a close network of thought and research.
