European Civilization, 1648-1945

by Yale University

This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.

Course Description

This course offers a broad survey of modern European history, from the end of the Thirty Years' War to the aftermath of World War II. Along with the consideration of major events and figures such as the French Revolution and Napoleon, attention will be paid to the experience of ordinary people in times of upheaval and transition. The period will thus be viewed neither in terms of historical inevitability nor as a procession of great men, but rather through the lens of the complex interrelations between demographic change, political revolution, and cultural development. Textbook accounts will be accompanied by the study of exemplary works of art, literature, and cinema.

The Professor Got It Right

Contrary to what LindaNelson says in her July 26, 2013, post, Professor Merriman does not say that Galileo was beheaded by the Pope. At minute 11 to 12 of the Peter-the-Great lecture the professor points out, accurately, that Galileo narrowly escaped being burned at the cross by the Pope.


Excellent series. Highly recommend

Incredibly Ideological

History from his point of view...little reliance on facts, but much on opinion, still regards people like Hobsbawm as a reliable guide to what allegedly happened...the farther left the better...last lecture was disgraceful...I guess indicative of the nonsense being taught in our supposedly pillars of higher education
