HST 102 is the second part of OSU’s Western Civ. Survey. We pick up the story of European civilisation in AD 1000, at the first millennium. The course will take you through some of the key moments in the intellectual, social, and cultural history of Europe: the Renaissance, Reformation, Scientific Revolution, and the Enlightenment, ending in 1789 with the beginning of the French Revolution.
