Using both our textbook and selected primary source readings, we will examine the political and military clashes that shaped the modern world, but we will also devote particular attention to the religious, economic, cultural, and psychological changes that accompanied these conflicts. In other words, we will explore the most influential events and developments seen during this time period as well as the everyday experiences and responses of ordinary Europeans, whether in the 16 th or 20 th century.
