HIS 3140 - Renaissance and Reformation

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): ENG 1010 or equivalent with a grade of D or better, and any course with HIS prefix or that is crosslisted with HIS prefix, or permission of instructor

Description: Europe in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries (1400-1600) underwent cataclysmic change. Spurred on by inventions such as the printing press, the compass, and gunpowder, Europeans recovered the learning of the ancients, created masterful works of art and literature, colonized the new world, and instituted centralized governments. These same factors, however, split Europe apart as scholars and the laity, influenced in part by Renaissance ideas, declared Roman Catholic dogma false. This course will try to come to terms with such monumental changes and to see how such changes affected intellectual ideas, economic progress, government, war, and daily life.
