HIS 233 - Renaissance, Reformations, Explorations

4 credits (Fall or Spring)
Examines the crucible of forces that turned Europe from a geographical location into a powerful cultural idea. We will explore the cultural movement of the Renaissance and the subsequent transformation of natural philosophy, the religious reformations that divided Christendom and catalyzed years of sectarian warfare, and Europeans’ increasing engagement with the wider world. Students will study primary sources and historical debates, and practice communicating history to a public audience.

Prerequisite: HIS 100  or second-year standing.
