The Pursuit of Power: Enormous Eastern Empires (8 weeks)

Once again, we turn back the time dial to explore the worlds of the Eastern Empires. The division of the Christian church and the rise of Islam bring on a series of violent events. Was religion the root of these many clashes, or was there an ulterior motive? You may be surprised to hear that parts of Africa were highly advanced at this time, made rich by the production and trading of salt. Asia was a mystery to most Europeans, and the Asian countries preferred it this way, until the arrival of Marco Polo. How was it that the Chinese monarchy toppled, but their civilization did not crumble like the Roman Empire? And what did the Asian countries give Western civilization, allowing the Western countries to move forward into the Renaissance? So much to learn!


The Byzantine Empire, Russia, and Eastern Europe (330 – 1613)

Muslim Civilizations (622-1629)

Kingdoms and Trading States of Africa (730 B.C. – A.D. 1591)

The Spread of Civilization in East and Southeast Asia (500 – 1650)

Michelangelo and Monarchies: The Renaissance and Age of Absolutism (8 weeks)

We have now reached the glories of the Renaissance. No longer spending all their time resources on simply surviving, as they did during the Middle Ages, Europeans become enveloped in reviving the ideas and achievements of the Greeks, the exemplars of exquisite and simplistic beauty. Scientific thinking opens up a plethora of unique theories, probing the laws of nature. New ideas from faraway lands stimulate the thinking of Europe: clocks, gun powder, new types of art and architecture seep into and intrigue the craftsmen of the many cathedrals, palaces, and structures throughout Europe. Explorers transverse the Pacific and Atlantic, discovering new lands and bringing home strange treasures. Art, science, and culture flourish and many of the most beautiful buildings are built, filled to the brim with glorious statues and paintings. Music is composed, philosophy is discussed, and great literature is authored. Absolute monarchies rise, claiming the divine right to rule, taxing, claiming land and riches, and creating a gap between the very rich and the very poor, which ultimately leads to revolutions around the world. The people seek to govern themselves, but they have much to learn before they find a government form that works. We learn that every age has their challenges and that the perspectives of history are many and varied, depending on which side of the stage you are standing on.


The Renaissance and Reformation (1300 – 1650)

The Beginnings of Our Global Age: Europe, Africa, and Asia (1415 – 1796)

The Beginnings of Our Global Age: Europe and the Americas (1492 – 1750)
