The History of Europe (7/11): Renaissance and Reformation 1450-1670

7th video in a series of 11 on the History of Europe. Here we look at one of the most important periods in world history... the European Renaissance, during which huge advances were made in the arts and sciences. It is during the Renaissance that da Vinci paints the Mona Lisa... Galileo draws the moons of Jupiter.

Here too religious theologians question the teachings and practices of the Catholic Church sparking the Protestant Reformation; the split within the Western Church and the subsequent persecution and murder of millions.

A momumental period in European and World history. Enjoy!
