Europe 1300-1600

This course is a part of Art history, a 19-course Topic series from Khan Academy.

Brought to you by Smarthistory. 1300-1600: In part, the Renaissance was a rebirth of interest in ancient Greek and Roman culture. It was also a period of economic prosperity in Europe—particularly in Italy and in Northern Europe. In 1517 a German theologian and monk, Martin Luther, challenged the authority of the Pope and sparked the Protestant Reformation. By challenging the power of the Church, and asserting the authority of individual conscience, the Reformation laid the foundation for the value that modern culture places on the individual.

This course contains 7 segments:

Late Gothic art in Italy

Brought to you by Smarthistory. The art of Giotto and Duccio was once known as primitive, and useful only as a prelude to the Renaissance. However, recent scholarship allows us to study the brilliant artists of Florence and Siena in their own right.

Renaissance in Italy: 1400s

Brought to you by Smarthistory. The engineering of Brunelleschi's dome, the naturalism of Donatello’s David, and the humanism of Botticelli’s Birth of Venus each help define the Early Renaissance in Italy.

Renaissance and after in Italy: 1500s

Brought to you by Smarthistory. Michelangelo's Sistine Ceiling, Leonardo’s Last Supper, and Raphael's Stanza frescos shape our understanding of Western culture even today.

Renaissance in Northern Europe: 1400s

Brought to you by Smarthistory. Northern Europe’s wealthy merchants and nobles supported the art of van Eyck, Bosch, Dürer, Bruegel, and Holbein; art that invites us back to their world.

Renaissance and after in Northern Europe: 1500s

Brought to you by Smarthistory. Discover Grünewald, Bosch, Dürer, Bruegel, Holbein and other extraordinary artists from the Renaissance in England, Germany, Flanders, etc.

Renaissance and after in Spain

Brought to you by Smarthistory.

Reformation and Counter-Reformation

Brought to you by Smarthistory. Why are there so many Protestant denominations (Baptist, Presbyterian, Pentecostal, etc.)? The early 16th century, a time when the Roman Catholicism was largely unchallenged in Western Europe, holds the answer.
