A Short History of Renaissance and Reformation Europe: Dances Over Fire and Water
In an effort to bridge the gap between the often different worlds of professors and students, this exploration of Renaissance and Reformation Europe offers an accessible, engaging approach that pays sufficient attention to the roles and contributions of women. Its conversational tone and concise presentation are examples of an approach that is more representative than comprehensive--introducing historical figures and concepts as they flow through the narrative, without frequent interruption to include and define technical and foreign terms. Rather than a compendium or grand "summa," the text serves as a brief introduction to some of the major personalities, issues, events and ideas of the Renaissance and Reformation age.
