Renaissance and Reformation - HSTY2710

Year - 2019

We start with the brilliant history of Renaissance Italy: courts, republics, scholars, and artists. We then examine the religious revolution known as the Reformation, whose theologians and preachers transformed Europe. We travel the oceans to explore Europe's age of expansion, and conclude with France's religious wars and England's revolution.
