Europe is home to some of the greatest artists and most brutal wars in world history.

Revolutions, reformations, and the Renaissance—it took a lot of movements to turn medieval Europe into what we know today. The world was shaped by Europe’s contributions to art, literature, science, culture, religion, and technology.

Not only has Europe been at the forefront of intellectual movements, but it has also been a part of some of the bloodiest wars in history. Despite its period of great rational thought, Europe dabbled rather extensively in the superstitious. Witch hunts spanned across the continent, with men, women, children, and sometimes even redheads being accused of conjuring evil!

Europe’s far-reaching impact means European history is inherently connected to the history of the world. It has a fascinating history that spans cultures, beliefs, and languages, including everything from gruesome wars to groundbreaking inventions.

This audiobook offers a complete and simple guide to all the events that shaped modern Europe as it stands today.

By listening to this audiobook, you will discover the following:

  • The beginning and impact of the Renaissance, and the resulting challenge to the Catholic Church.
  • The role of the Protestant Reformation and the Renaissance in bringing about the Age of Discovery.
  • The dark period of witch hunts and trials that took Europe by storm.
  • The British Agricultural Revolution and the Industrial Revolution, and how they pushed the two world wars.
  • The emergence of the world’s first communist state and its fall.
  • The role of influential women throughout Europe who were vital to shaping its history.

And much, much more!
