During the 229-year period 1485-1714, England transformed itself from a minor feudal state into "the first modern society," emerging as the wealthiest, most powerful nation in the world. The English people survived epidemics, famines, one failed invasion and two successful ones, two civil wars, violent religious reformations and counter-reformations, and confrontations with two of the most powerful monarchs on Earth, Louis XIV of France and Philip II of Spain. All while producing a marvelous culture that gave the world John Locke, William Shakespeare, Jonathan Swift, John Milton, Christopher Wren, Isaac Newton, and the King James Bible. Despite cruelty, bloodshed, and religious suppression, they left behind the political principles and ideals for which we--and so many of them--would work and die, and on which we Americans would build our nation. This lecture series covers this momentous period in England's storied history.
