A Short History of Renaissance and Reformation Europe, Fourth Edition 

Dances over Fire and Water

 

Jonathan W. Zophy

 

This concise survey makes the exciting history of Europe in the age of the Renaissance and Reformation come alive to readers.  It is the first textbook on Europe between 1300 and 1700 to focus on gender as a significant issue for historical analysis.  Author Jonathan W. Zophy introduces major events and personalities of the period as well as its cultural, economic, religious, political, and social developments.  Taking a biographical approach, the book discusses ideas and artistic creations in their human and social contexts.

 

New to the Fourth Edition

  •  A full-color portfolio featuring sixteen important Renaissance works of art
  • A reorganized Chapter Four that highlight the centrality of Florence for the Renaissance.
  • Pivotal events, such as the voyages of exploration, placed in a more global context.
  • Recent developments in scholarship have been incorporated in each chapter.
  • The “Further Reading” sections have been updated to reflect the latest developments in the field.
