FIF 166 Wars of the Roses and the Beginning of the Modern World

Course Description

Review the political, social and military changes in 15th century Europe, and examine how that century formed the bridgehead into the modern world. We will follow the English Wars of the Roses as a case study to see how quickly life could change in a 35-year period. England will be our focus but we will also look at other states--France, Italy and Spain in particular. Through 15th century texts such as Chaucer and Geoffrey of Monmouth as well as the Paston letters, see how the Renaissance developed artistically and socially across Europe and how great an influence the 15th century had in shaping the modern world.
