HIST 4230 The Age of the Renaissance (Spring: 3 )
During the late fourteenth century, Europe was attacked by the Four Horsemen of the apocalypse: Disease, War, Famine, and Death. In the face of widespread catastrophe, men and women began to seek stability and truth in new ways, within and beyond the confines of state and church. The sum of the many solutions they found is what we call the Renaissance (1350-1650). This course introduces students to cultural and intellectual developments in Italy and Northern Europe, as well as European encounters with the New World.
