HST 331: The Renaissance

Course not open to Freshmen

General Education requirement: Cult & Art Literacy/Global

Traces the history of Europe from the mid-14th century through the mid-16th century with a special focus on Italy, France, and England. The focus is on the slow transformation of Europe's political elites and their self-representation in literature and the visual arts. Also, students study the working classes of the city and countryside, whose labor made possible the cultural achievements of the period, and groups of people, religious minorities, heretics, bandits, and vagabonds, whose relations with 'normal' society were often conflicted.
