This course is a survey of Western Europe from 1350 to 1600. It examines the political, military and social events surrounding the re-birth of classical knowledge and artistic expression in Italy known as the Renaissance. The course also traces the movement of the Renaissance northward, focusing on the coming Reformation era. The last part of the course studies the Protestant and Catholic Reformations to include how the Reformations effected the growth of the modern nation-state.
