Short Description:

This is a course on the period between 1450 and 1600 i.e. on the period of the transition from Christiandom to “Europe”. The main questions studied are the humanistic movement, the Protestant and the Catholic Reformation, the religious wars, the evolucion of the political institutions, the organization of the economy and the overseas european installations.

Christiandom lost its relevance after Luther and the first heresy which managed to become a Church. Following that, the Roman Church ceased to play a universal role which was the fist foundation of the Christiandom. In the same time, following the failure of the Charles V to restore the Empire, its second foundation was also lost. Another factor that led to the substitution of “Europe” to Christiandom was the European expansion overseas: the conquered people help the Europeans to realize that despite their religious differences, they were sharing the same “civilization”.
