This unit covers the history of Europe from the start of the Reformation in 1517 to the French Revolution in 1789. In this period, Europe underwent profound transformations. The hegemony of the Catholic Church was challenged by the Protestant Reformation, which tore Europe apart as great dynasties and proto-nations fought for religious and political supremacy. European colonial empires were established in the Americas, Africa and Asia, revolutionising the world economy. Finally, the Enlightenment and Scientific Revolution decisively altered the intellectual landscape of the Western World. Europe as we know it today was moulded by the momentous events of this period.
