This subject was previously known as MHIX121 The Worlds of Early Modern Europe.
In 1348 an horrific pandemic struck western Europe. The Black Death killed between one-third and one-half of the European population and threatened the collapse of Europe's glittering medieval civilization. This subject explores what happened next. Over the next four-and-one-half centuries, Europe experienced a period of dramatic and enduring change, out which many features of the modern, western world emerged. Beginning with the horrors of the Black Death, this era witnessed the splendor of the Renaissance, violent religious disputes and changes, the challenge of the new world of the Americas, the Scientific Revolution, the Enlightenment, and closed with the bloodshed and upheaval of the French Revolution.
