Finally, although a vast literary and scientific production eventually appeared with vulgar languages replacing Latin and Greek, the belief in cultural unit remained intact. In other words, the new cultivated languages were considered as such because they remained close to Latin and Greek, belonging in and following the models established by the classical Greek-Latin culture. Already in the Modern Era, rationalist thought, which led to the great French Revolution, keeps this same idea of unity. Culture is as unique as rationality. The consequences of this thought are of utmost importance, for the translation of one cultivated language to another may present difficulties but, definitely, such translation is possible because their background unity of meanings remains.
