Looking for a book that give an overview of the Renaissance.

Recommended Posts

I really like Renaissance and Reformation by Dorothy Mills. My dd will be using this next year along with other books for 8th grade.

Here is the table of contents:

I. The Spirit of the Renaissance

II. The Renaissance in Italy

1. The Italian City State

2. Florence


Lorenzo de' Medici: Il Magnifico

Florentine Society

The Writers

The Artists and Builders

The Reformers: Savonarola

3. Venice and Her Painters

4. Renaissance Rome

The Pope

Architects and Artists in Rome


From here I'll just list the major headings:


III The Empire

IV Spain

V France of the Renaissance

VI Early Tudor England

VII The Renaissance in the North

VIII Renaissance Education

IX The Renaissance and the Discoveries of Science

X The Age of Discovery

XI Europe and the Eve of the Reformation

XII The Reformation in Germany: Martin Luther

XIII Reformers in Switzerland and France

XIV The Reformation in England

XV John Knox and the Church of Scotland

XVI The Bible in English

XVII The Wars of Religion
