    One thought on “Renaissance, the Reformation, and the Rise of Nations”

    1. Professor Andrew Fix of Lafayette College teaches courses in 'Intellectual History', however this interesting course pulls in social, political and economic history to provide a survey of European History from roughly 1300 - 1700. Professor Fix summarises the major elements in the course title well. Interesting insights included the economic and political impact of the wars and plague of the thirteenth century, an excellent look at the Reformation and a look at the crises of the seventeenth cent [...]

    2. A survey course, set on about a sixth grade level. I would rate this a little higher except that the first third or so was so full of generalities and so lacking in specific examples or facts that it was like listening to a series of topic sentences. And at the end, rather than offering a summary overview or preview of what came next, Prof. Fix just cuts off. He's easy enough to listen tooI wish he had worked with better written material.

    3. No time to read so I'm listening to this Great Courses lecture by Andrew C. Fix.The lectures are extremely enjoyable.

    4. Was surprised at some facts this professor got wrong. He said Prince Arthur died in a boat accident, which is not true, he got ill and died in Wales from unknown causes. There was a Prince William that did die in a boating accident, but it wasn't him. William was Henry I heir, not Henry VII. Bad scholarship.

    5. A great overall of the period. I was most impressed by the speaker's grasp of the reformation. I would recommend this to anyone interested in investigating or have a general interest in the time period.

    6. Very good series of lectures on a period of history about 1300-1700 which I wished to become more familiar. Fix did a really good job on this series.
