Syllabus:

The sixteenth and seventeenth centuries are often claimed by historians to represent the transition between the medieval and modern worlds. The aim of this course is to examine this notion that the early modern era witnessed the rise of modernity. It will do so by discussing the 'key' transformations, including the Black Death, Renaissance, Reformation and Scientific Revolution, but also those aspects of the period which do not seem that modern, like the witch hunts. Through lectures, tutorials and a particular emphasis on primary documents, students will be challenged to consider just what constitutes 'modern' and 'medieval' thought and practice. Moreover, the notion of 'great events' in history and how aptly labels like 'renaissance' periodize our study of the past will be considered. In addition, through a-v material, art and extracts from their writings, the images, sounds and words of da Vinci, Luther, Copernicus and the witches will bring this fascinating period of history alive.
