9780340662083: The Transformation of Europe 1300-1600 (Arnold History of Europe)

A survey of the history of Europe during the three centuries traditionally seen as bridging the late mediaeval or Renaissance periods and the early modern age It shows the important changes in the political configuration and governing institutions of Europe economic developments and social problems Europe s relations with the broader world creative activity and religious attitudes that begin at the end of the 14th century and culminate in the early 17th Themes include the development of state institutions at both the national and local levels the growth of an integrated European economy in the course of a cycle of depression to recovery the transition of a Europe under siege by eastern powers to an expansionist and colonial Europe the changing attitudes toward the classical and Christian heritages of Europe as reflected in educational institutions curricula and attitudes and in secular and religious expression Although the importance of seeing the entire period as a unit is emphasized throughout the book is structured in two parts dividing around 1450 so that those who prefer the more traditional periodization can still readily use it This comprehensive survey of European history between 1300 and 1600 challenges conventional vision of Europe that divides the world between the late medieval and early modern periods emphasizing the distortion involved in that construction Important changes toward modernity are evident the book argues as early as the fourteenth century only in religious history does there appear to be some justification for retaining the traditional notion that modern age began with Martin Luther though even in that arena the institutional break of the Protestants with Rome cannot conceal fundamental continuity of expression and attitude This comprehensive survey of European history between 1300 and 1600 gently subverts a conventional vision of Europe that divides the world between the late medieval and early modern periods

Review:

'...a refreshingly different perspective to the usual 'birth of the Renaissance and its consequences' approach.' English Historical Review 'A wide-ranging, informative and engaging study of European life in what are conventionally described as the late medieval and early modern periods...an intelligent and coherent study, which provides an excellent introduction to a complex period.' Economic History Review

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 1999. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The Transformation of Europe gently subverts a conventional vision of Europe that divides the world between the late-medieval and early modern periods, emphasizing the distortion involved in that construction. Important changes towards modernity are evident, the book argues, as early as the fourteenth century; only in religious history does there appear to be some justification for retaining the traditional notion that modern age began with Martin Luther, though even in that arena the institutional break of the Protestants with Rome cannot conceal fundamental continuity of expression and attitude. The transformation of the title emphasizes gradual, if significant change in the period. Change to the political configuration and governing institutions of Europe, to the economy and to society, to the region s relations with the broader world, to the course of creative activity, and to religious attitudes. Professor Nicholas is an effective and experienced guide to the important themes and unfolding events in Europe s history from the onset of the Hundred Years war to the great confessional divide of the sixteenth century.
