a. Unknown/Various: This one’s perplexing. It could be an appositive, albeit a poor one. Perhaps the author believes the era brought the Renaissance new thinking (subject-verb-indirect object-direct object) and simply separated willy-nilly with a comma.

c. Comma: Independent clauses separated with coordinating conjunction without a comma.
