Lecture Hour(s): 3
Lecture Hours Schedule Type: Lecture
This course explores the intellectual and cultural developments known as “the Renaissance” within the social, economic and political contexts of Europe in fourteenth and fifteenth-century. Students will study a wide range of contemporary sources to examine the values and beliefs of people who created or reacted to humanism and the reshaping of their societies by the emergence of modern capitalism, the discovery of new worlds, and the advent of a revolutionary information technology: printing. The work of modern historians will be used to illuminate and contextualize the developments in this period, as well as to demonstrate the range of critical perspectives that have been applied to it.
