Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I recommend this course because the information learned is relevant and transferable to every field of study. Many of the thinkers who influenced our common core learning and standards begin during this block of time in history. The Renaissance brought with it many changes and advancements that shape and define who we are today, and who we will continue to grow to be in the future.
During this course, we studied the relationship between politics and religion, and how people were influenced (or coerced) by laws set forth in either sector. We looked back at the writings of many philosophers and creative thinkers who shape(d) the western mode of thinking and advancing. We focused on how smaller groups of people can stand up for a cause and create a turn around for the good, despite losses taken in the meantime for being heretics.

Advice for students:
I would recommend doing some research on the entire pan-European Renaissance before taking the class. Also, drawing out a timeline of the royal class might help to stay on track.
