From Leonardo DaVinci's experiments to the historic scandal and trial of Galileo Galilei, students will gain a historical framework for early thinking in Western Europe, with a strong emphasis on Italy. Students will track the cultural view of the role of religion, science, magic, and philosophy and see how these shifts still impact contemporary western culture.
