Course Aims & Objectives
According to the Cornell Catalogue, this course studies "Europe in the Reformation and early modern eras." We will be focusing on the two major intellectual and cultural debates of the 1500s and 1600s: the Reformation and the Scientific Revolution. The resulting social and political transformations will be considered in respect to nations individually, and in comparison with each other.

Required Reading

  • The Reformation in National Context, edited by Bob Scribner, Roy Porter, and Mikulas Teich
  • The Scientific Revolution in National Context, edited by Roy Porter and Mikulas Teich
  • Additional readings for class will be distributed on the day you need to read them. Materials needed for completion of your final paper will need to be accessed on-line at the Internet History Sourcebooks.
