I would suggest taking a look at enotes' wealth of information on the Renaissance period. The Renaissance was a period of rebirth and artistic, philosophical, and religious enlightenment. This is the period of time in which Michelangelo painted the famous Sistine chapel ceiling, which took him four years to complete. Leonardo DaVinci is also famous for his art and inventions during this time. Michelangelo, Donatello, Raphael, and Galileo were all notable personages of the Renaissance, and they were patronized by a wealthy family named Medici. During this time, explorers such as Christopher Columbus and John Cabot find new routes and new places, the Protestant Reformation begins, and some of the world's most famous paintings and art work were created.

I think it might be boring because you are not focusing on the right things. There are plenty of fascinating facts about this period in history. Some of the best art and inventions came from the Renaissance. Perhaps you could do some reading about it outside of your text.
