Course Description

Early modern Europe was torn by contradiction and conflict. Rediscovery of the ancients and reinterpretation of the Bible produced a new culture but split Christianity. The nation state, the Atlantic economy, modern capitalism and new empires developed amid revolt and resistance. Growing literacy and modified gender relations reshaped society. Witches were still burned while scientists transformed knowledge; an age of reason emerged while war grew more terrible. Out of all this came Europe's world domination.
