4th Grade: the Renaissance & Reformed World

The Renaissance
The renaissance, or rebirth, of interest in classical antiquity: their literature, languages, and philosophies, brought about, indirectly, by the Crusades and Marco Polo’s travels, and directly by the Fall of Constantinople in 1453, began in Italy and spread to the rest of Europe.

The Reformation
Dissatisfaction with the immoralites of the Church had been building for centuries: almost all Medieval literature contains the archtype of the corrupt church official. But with the Fall of Constantinople in 1453, Europe was reintroduced to the Greek New Testament, and the time was right for the Reformation. Like the persecution of the early church during the Roman Empire, the more “heretics” burned, the more the witness went out to the pure truth of Scripture.

The Age of Exploration
If there had been no Renaissance and no Reformation, there would have been no Age of Exploration. The thirst for knowledge inspired by those two interelated movements on the Continent naturally overflowed into geographic exploration as well.

Renaissance & Reformed World Teacher’s Resources
In the Renaissance, Reformation, and Exploration, we have encapsulated the greatest triumphs and tragedies of Western Civilization: triumphs because the Reformation and the discovery of the New World led to the establishment of the purest and freeest form of government known to man so far: the American experiment. And tragedies because in throwing off the yoke of a corrupt and bloated church system, mankind rejected Christianity in toto and returned to the age-old pagan and humanistic philosophies that have plagued the modern world. These essential resources will help the homeschool parent grasp the big picture.

The Renaissance & Reformed World for Older Students
If you are beginning classical education or homeschooling with older grammar stage students, or need resources to fill in the facts of history with dialectic and rhetoric stage students, these will do that at a higher reading level.


The Renaissance

Famous Men of the Renaissance and Reformation
Robert Shearer

Click to order Famous Men of the Renaissance and Reformation “The recovery of learning and the stunning developments in painting and sculpture that characterize the Renaissance make it a truly fascinating era. ... At the same time the artists were creating their masterpieces, Renaissance scholars were re-discovering the heritage of the Greek and Roman world. The rapid advances in the understanding of ancient languages ... laid the foundation for the translation of the Scriptures by the scholars of the Reformation. ... The stirring events of the Reformation are in an entirely different category of history from the Renaissance. In an incredibly short period we meet figures of amazing courage, faith, ability, and talent. ... Famous Men of the Renaissance and Reformation covers the period in western European history from 1300-1550 and includes chapters on Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Durer, Erasmus, Wyclif, Hus, Luther, Calvin, Zwingli, Tyndale, Knox & others. Includes over 75 b&w images of the men, women and works of art. 29 chapters, 192 pages.” -Rob Shearer.


Renaissance and Reformation
Trevor Cairns

Click to order Renaissance and Reformation Another excellent book in the Cambridge Introduction to World History series, this time giving a clear picture of the events and persons influencing the Renaissance and Reformation eras. All the books in the series are excellent for grammar stage students. Specializing in the history of Western Civilization, they give the big picture and depth and detail in ways that other children’s books lamentably miss.

Renaissance
Andrew Langley, Andy Crawford

Click to order Renaissance “Travel back in time to the period of extraordinary growth and vitality that was Renaissance Europe. Meet Michelangelo, Machiavelli, and the Medicis. Experience the daily life and workings of a Renaissance town. View some of the most beautiful and important art works in the world. In glorious full-color photographic spreads, Renaissance documents Europe’s emergence from the Middle Ages into an era of unparalleled enlightenment and creativity in the realms of politics, arts, literature, technology, and innovation.” The Eyewitness books are like a fascinating museum tour through its topic, and Renaissance is no exception.


Leonardo da Vinci
Richard McLanathan

Click to order Leonardo da Vinci With the Abrams First Impressions biographies, a leading publisher of artist biographies for college study has introduced a wonderful biography series for children. First Impressions relates the whole detailed story of the artist’s life, illustrated with photographs and drawings of the man, his surroundings, and his works. “Here, the life of one of the greatest, most versatile figures in the history of art is told in a fresh, anecdotal style. Beginning with Leonardo’s boyhood, we are guided through ducal palaces, the papal court, and from his teacher’s workshop to the world’s leading museums. 56 illustrations, including 32 in full color.”


Michelangelo
Richard McLanathan

Click to order Michelangelo Another wonderful First Impressions biography. This latest volume is the first complete biography of the Italian Renaissance artist Michelangelo written especially for young readers. The dramatic story of Michelangelo’s rise to fame and influence and his struggles to complete huge and important commissions like the Sistine Ceiling are told in vivid detail. “Appropriately accompanied by black-and-white and stunning full-color reproductions, an overview of the artist’s major works and his role within the dramatically changing political landscape of the Renaissance is presented in a clear fashion. An understated narrative style that avoids generalizations and declarations of genius is a rare asset.” -Horn Book.


Rembrandt
Gary Schwartz

Click to order Rembrandt While Rembrandt is a figure more of the modern world than that of the renaissance and reformation, he is a product of the Dutch northern renaissance and the best-known of the famous Dutch masters that arose from that school. “By a Rembrandt authority and longtime Netherlands resident, the best yet in the First Impressions series. Schwartz not only relays the most significant events in the master’s life, depicts the genius and milieu that engendered his fame, and outlines enough political and social history to give him context, but also conveys the man’s rich complexity, includes sage observations about the difficulty of winnowing facts from legends adhering to the great, offers a succinct overview of schools of art history ... and ends with a history of the artist’s reputation (fueled, ironically, both by the many misattributions and by their unmaskings). Schwartz includes telling contemporary quotes (the poet Huygens observed that Rembrandt “combines individual and universal features better than any [classical] Greek painter”); his own uncondescending voice is admirably lucid and intelligent, with a humorous edge. ... a nearly flawless text, with more emphasis on the art’s emotional content than on the artist’s techniques. The 54 beautifully reproduced illustrations are well chosen, placed, and captioned; the elegant book design, with borders subtly echoing Rembrandt’s signature glow, is outstanding. A must.” -Kirkus Reviews.


I, Juan de Pareja
Elizabeth Borton de Trevino

Click to order I, Juan de Pareja Winner of the Newberry Medal in 1965, this engaging tale is part biography and part historical fiction. Juan de Pareja was an African slave willed to the great Spanish court painter, Velasquez. The story is told through Juan de Pareja’s eyes. Juan learned how to paint and was talented, in spite of the law forbidding slaves to practice any kind of art. The relationship between Juan and Velasquez also undergoes a transformation as the story progresses: from that of master-slave to that of friendship based on equality. Through Juan’s eyes we get glimpses of the Spanish royal court, Italy during the Renaissance, and the masters Rubens and Murillo.


Queen Elizabeth I
Robert Green

Click to order Queen Elizabeth I Queen Elizabeth, the monarch under which William Shakespeare wrote his plays, and Sir Francis Drake made his daring expeditions against the Spanish, is an important person in both Renaissance and Reformation history. She encouraged the arts and literature in England, giving room for the northern renaissance to flourish there, and also championed the Protestantism established in England by her father, Henry VIII, which was suspended for a time by her half-sister Mary. Her reign was a pivotal one in the history of England. This book in the First Book: Monarchs series “does a fine job of introducing Queen Elizabeth I and fitting her into the context of her world, an age that eventually bore her name. Green’s lively text begins with the reign of Elizabeth’s father, Henry VIII, and that of her immediate predecessor, Mary Tudor. The book’s focus is on the clash between Catholicism and Protestantism ... as well as the sea battles that brought England riches and fame. The book is very handsomely illustrated with portraits of the text’s principals; many of the paintings hang in England’s National Gallery.” -ALA.


Bard of Avon: the Story of William Shakespeare
Peter Vennema, Diane Stanley

Click to order Bard of Avon Another excellent Vennema/Stanley biography, told “with intelligence, scrupulous regard for the historical record, and a wise eye to the interests of their audience. Emphasizing how little is known for sure about Shakespeare, they phrase their straightforward text to make admirably clear the boundaries of fact and the bases for plausible conjecture ... Summarizing the most significant events, they illuminate them with well chosen, often intriguing details and tell as much about the Elizabethan theater as about the playwright. Stanley’s elegant illustrations are especially well suited to the topic; she uses details of Tudor architecture and costume to richly decorative effect ... An excellent Postscript discusses the evolution of Shakespeare’s English, his own inventions (e.g., “majestic,” “leapfrog,” “gloomy”) and the continuing ubiquity of his vivid descriptions. Outstanding.” -Kirkus Reviews.

Louise Vernon’s Reformation era biographies:
Louise Vernon

Click to order Thunderstorm in Church Louise Vernon has written a number of biographies of men and movements for children that read like a novel. Thunderstorm in Church tells of the life of Martin Luther (German, 1483-1546), including his inspiring stand for the truth at the Diet of Worms. Other books include The Beggar’s Bible (Wyclif, English, 1328-1384, who was the first to promote the authority of Scripture above church practice, and began a translation of the Latin Vulgate into English vernacular), Ink on His Fingers (Gutenberg, German, 1397-1468, who invented the printing press, ironically, to give the Catholic church a better forum to counteract the growing reformist movement), The Man Who Laid the Egg (Erasmus, Dutch, 1469-1536, who wrote a treatise highlighting the immoralities and follies of the church), Bible Smuggler (Tyndale, English, 1494-1536, denounced as a heretic for translating, printing and distributing the Bible in English, and martyred for his faith), Night Preacher (Simons, Dutch, 1496-1561, established the Anabaptist and Mennonite churches), and Secret Church (Anabaptists, who reject infant baptism and believe regeneration is the true test of a Christian).


Joyce McPherson’s Reformation era biographies:
Joyce McPherson

Click to order A Piece of the Mountain In A Piece of the Mountain, homeschooling mom Joyce McPherson tells the neglected story of Blaise Pascal, a French mathematician and scientist, one of the most important of the fifteenth century. Not only a brilliant scientist, Pascal was converted to Christianity while an adult, and became a noted apologist for the Christian faith. His Pensees (Thoughts) is one of the great books of Western Civilization. The Ocean of Truth details the life of Sir Isaac Newton. This biography goes beyond his contributions to science and mathematics (optics, light, color, the three laws of motion, the mathematical formula for the law of gravity, and Calculus) and delves also into his deep and abiding Christian faith. The River of Grace, the newest McPherson biography, tells the story of the life of John Calvin. McPherson “focuses especially on Calvin’s childhood and youth, tracing his days at the university and the circumstances of his conversion ... [through] his early and precocious leadership of the Protestants in France and his flight from France to Geneva.” -Publisher.

The Age of Exploration

Great Adventures that Changed Our World
Peter Lacey

Great Adventures That Changed Our World Subtitled: the World’s Great Explorers, Their Triumphs and Tragedies. For later grammar stage children to read independently, but interesting to all ages read aloud. The history of exploration, beginning with the Phoenicians through the manned-space missions, replete with maps, photographs, and the fascinating stories behind the facts.

Excellent--well worth searching for.

The Usborne Book of Explorers
Felicity Everett

Click to order Usborne Book of Explorers The in-print counterpart that could be used instead of Great Adventures That Changed Our World, but unfortunately without the depth of scope, or the interesting narrative. Still, this provides an overview of the history of exploration of all the areas of the world and who explored them, from Columbus through Neil Armstrong.


Explorers Who Got Lost
Diane Sansevere Dreher

Click to order Explorers Who Got Lost An original look at the unintentional “discoveries” of some of history’s explorers discusses, among others, Columbus’ stumbling upon the Bahama Islands, San Salvador, and Cuba. Full of facts and adventure, this book provides detailed information on the most influential explorers beginning in the fifteenth century - Christopher Columbus, Ferdinand Magellan, Bartholomeau Dias, Henry Hudson, Stanley Livingston, and Sir Francis Drake. Includes the history, sociology and the superstitions of the time along with drawings, maps, routes and diagrams of ships and navigational equipment. Illustrated throughout.


The World of Columbus and Sons
Genevieve Foster

Click to order The World of Columbus and Sons Each part of Genevieve Foster’s interesting histories tell about the world, the events, and the persons important during each stage of her subject’s life. Thus, when Columbus was a boy, we learn of the pivotal events and persons of the fifteenth century, leading up to his landmark voyages at the end of that century, and then following the lives of his sons for the first part of the sixteenth century. Thus we not only learn of Columbus and his sons’ lives, but we meet the other artists, explorers, royalty, church leaders, reformers, and others that lived during his pivotal times.


Ship
David Macaulay

Click to order Ship “In their day, the small wooden ships called caravels were a technological triumph--the space shuttles of the fifteenth century. The creation of the caravel, a ship ideally suited to the uncertainties of coastal exploration and transatlantic travel, changed the map of the world forever. And yet there are no drawings or models from that time which tell us exactly what these ships looked like or how they were built. In Ship, we join a group of modern-day underwater archaeologists as they search for a long-lost caravel in the reefs of the Caribbean. The piece-by-piece recovery of maritime artifacts ... is straightforwardly described through a combination of drawings, documents, maps, and diagrams. And as the clues to the past are pieced together, a story is revealed--of the triumphant birth of the ship Magdelena of Seville, and of its tragic final voyage a continent away. Although a work of fiction, Ship is based entirely on recent and continuing efforts of archaeologists and historians around the world.” -Jacket.


The Sea King: Sir Francis Drake and His Times
Albert Marrin

Click to order The Sea King The Spanish called Sir Francis Drake ‘Elizabeth’s Dog,’ which shows who he was working for. But the life of Sir Francis Drake encompasses far more than the Age of Exploration: it has to do with the Renaissance, as Elizabeth was the champion of the arts and literature in England; and the Reformation, as Protestant England’s harrying of the Catholic Spanish was in part a repercussion of the Spanish Inquisition; as well as the Age of Exploration, as the events of Sir Francis Drake’s life were played out in the royal courts of the Old World and the newly mapped waterways of the New. Dr. Albert Marrin is a capable guide to this turbulent time period and effortlessly interweaves the elements of the Renaissance, the Reformation, and the Age of Exploration together in his fascinating narrative of the life and times of the Sea King. Amply illustrated with maps, paintings, and other historical media, and containing a very select and outstanding bibliography and comprehensive index, Marrin’s histories, on any subject we can find them, have long been our family’s favorites.


Where Am I? The Story of Maps & Navigation
A. G. Smith

Click to order Where Am I? For the later grammar stage, “this thoroughly fascinating history of cartography ranges from the birchbark maps of the early Indians and clay tablets of the Babylonians right up to the Global Positioning System of today... Great resource book for teachers, and lovers of maps or history.” So says the Parent Council review. This is the best book on the history of cartography for kids that I have seen.

The Penguin Atlas of Modern History
Colin McEvedy

Click to order The Penguin Atlas of Modern History Like the other Atlases in this series, the Atlas of Modern History is an absorbing source of reference containing nearly 40 maps, each accompanied by Colin McEvedy’s always interesting, often witty, detailed commentary. This atlas examines the major historical developments between 1483 and 1815. So it covers the Renaissance and Reformation eras, and the Age of Exploration, and some information on the settling of the New World, plus such major European events as the French Revolution. American history is covered in a separate volume.


Humanists and Reformers
Bard Thompson

Click to order Humanists and Reformers Subtitled: A History of the Renaissance and the Reformation. Humanists and Reformers portrays two great traditions in human history: the Italian Renaissance and the age of the Reformation. Bard Thompson provides a fascinating survey of these important historical periods under pressure of their own cultural, social, and spiritual experiences, exploring the bonds that held Humanists and Reformers together and the estrangements that drove them apart. In the section devoted to the Italian Renaissance, an opening historiography is followed by accounts of the struggles that underlie the Renaissance, the papacy and the rebuilding of Rome, the growth of capitalism, and the rise of the monarchies and city states. Separate histories of Venice, Milan, and Florence are provided and painters, sculptors, and architects of the Quattrocento and Cinquecento are also given full scope, including close-ups of Michelangelo and Raphael....The section devoted to the age of the Reformation includes coverage of Erasmus and the major figures of the Northern Renaissance; and the Reformers and their thought: Luther, Zwingli, the Anabaptists and Calvin. Throughout this volume Thompson gives special attention to subjects of note from both periods, such as: Castiglione’s Book of the Courtier, the emergence of printing, Andrea Mantegna, Titian and the Venetian painters, Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael’s Vatican Stanze, Michelangelo’s Medici tombs, art and poetry in early sixteenth-century France, St. Peter’s Basilica, and Foxe’s Book of Martyrs.


The Protestant Reformation
Lewis W. Spitz, editor

Click to order The Protestant Reformation This book, subtitled ‘Major Documents,’ contains selections from the writings of the Reformers and their contemporaries. It includes many of Luther’s essays, such as the 95 Theses, as well as a good representation of Calvin’s, including selections from Institutes of the Christian Religion. Also included are selections from Erasmus’ In Praise of Folly, as well as writings from Zwingli, Sattler, Castellio, Cranmer, Lady Jane Grey, and more.


Great Voices of the Reformation
Harry Emerson Fosdick, editor

This Modern Library edition is my favorite book for primary source material of the Reformers. It is unfortunately out of print, but contains selections from the writings of Wyclif (Wyclif’s Translation of the Bible, How the Office of Curates is Ordained by God, Antichrist’s Labour to Destroy Holy Writ, more); Hus (Treatise on the Church, letters); Luther (Reply at the Diet of Worms, Concerning Christian Liberty, Address to the Christian Nobility of the German Nation, Preface to Romans); Melanchthon (Oration at the Funeral of Martin Luther, The Loci Communes); Zwingli (On True and False Religion, An Account of the Faith); Calvin (Letter to Cardinal James Sadolet, Instruction in Faith); Knox (History of the Reformation in Scotland); Anabaptists (Schleitheim Confession, Two Kinds of Obedience, Writings of Hans Denck, Protest, more); Hooker (Laws of Ecclesiastical Polity); Mather (Magnalia Christi Americana); Taylor (Liberty of Prophesying); Williams (Bloody Tenet of Persecution); Hart (Remonstrance of the Inhabitants of the Town of Flushing to Governor Stuyvesant); Fox (Journal); Woolman (Journal); and Wesley (Plain Account, Character of a Methodist, What is an Arminian?, more).

Church History in Plain Language
Bruce L. Shelley

Click to order Church History in Plain Language This modern classic is a clear and gracious treatment of church history by Dr. Bruce Shelley, Senior Professor of Church History and Historical Theology at Denver Theological Seminary. “What separates Dr. Shelley's book from others is its clarity, both of language and of organization. [It] treats history as the story of people--their motivations, the issues they grapple with, the decisions they make--and the result is that history reads like a story, almost as dramatic and moving as a novel. Yet there is no fiction here.” For ease of learning and understanding, the book is divided into the eight great ages of the church: The Age of Jesus and the Apostles (6 B.C. to 70 A.D.), of Catholic Christianity (70-312 A.D.), of the Christian Roman Empire (312-590), of the Christian Middle Ages (590-1517), of the Reformation (1517-1648), of Reason and Revival (1648-1789), of Progress (1789-1914), and of Ideologies (1914-1996). Very helpful and insightful.

The Renaissance & Reformed World for Older Students

The dialectic and rhetoric stage history resources offered through this catalog assume that the renaissance and reformed world has already been studied in the grammar stage. If you are beginning classical education or homeschooling with older students, these resources will give them the necessary foundation they might have missed. The books are listed in chronological order, more or less, and so are in the order in which they should be read. Rhetoric stage students that have not previously studied classical world history should also include the Teacher’s Resources listed above.

The Story of Liberty
Charles Coffin

Click to order The Story of Liberty This is an invaluable book that documents the whole struggle for liberty begun in the Middle Ages by King John’s barons who forced him to sign the Great Charter on the meadow of Runnymede in 1215. Written in chronological order, it seamlessly melds the events of the Renaissance, the Reformation, and the Exploration together to present a continuous narrative of the times. Chapters on King John and the barons, Wyclif, Hus, Gutenberg, the Inquisition, Columbus, the explorers of the New World, Henry VIII and Katherine of Aragon, Pope Alexander VI, Martin Luther, Leo X, Charles V of Spain, Cardinal Wolsey, Francis I of France, Ignatius Loyola and the Jesuits, Anne Boleyn, Mary Tudor, the Huguenots, Queen Elizabeth, Catherine de Medici, St. Bartholomew’s Eve, Mary, Queen of Scots, William of Orange, the Siege of Leydens, Henry of Navarre, William Brewster and the church at Scrooby, James I of England, and the Puritans’ journey from England, to Holland, to America. The only detraction of the book is that it is written in the present tense; however, that is a minor irritation.


Here I Stand: A Life of Martin Luther
Roland Herbert Bainton

Click to order Here I Stand This authoritative biography of the great religious leader was hailed by Time magazine as “the most readable Luther biography in English.” Luther “entered a monastery as a youth and who, as a man, shattered the structure of the medieval church. [He] spoke out against the corrupt religious practices that then existed. His demand that the authority for doctrine and practice be Scriptures, rather than Popes or Councils, echoed around the world and ignited the Great Reformation. Accused of heresy and threatened with excommunication and death, Luther maintained his bold stand and refused to recant. In his crusade to eliminate religious abuses, he did more than any other man to establish the Protestant faith. With sound historical scholarship and penetrating insight, Roland Bainton examines Luther’s widespread influence. He re-creates the spiritual setting of the sixteenth century, showing Luther’s place within it and influence upon it.”
