Cool to know:

Officially the year 1453 still falls within the time period of the “Late Middle Ages” which spans approximately from 1250 to 1500.

Constantinople houses many scholars who fled their residence to many places, among which many countries of Europe.
Which is seen as a possible significant contribution of making the Renaissance happen when Western science benefited from the influence of Eastern science and sparking a great sense of curiosity as an interesting side effect.
