Summary: Richard Dunn takes the reader beyond the common threads that bind this period of upheaval together: the strife between adherents of the Catholic and Protestant churches. He shows that there were more lasting developments in European history that can be traced to this period--it was an age that witnessed new centralization of political and economic power in the state, as well as the rise of absolutism and the spread of the mercantilist doctrine. Furthermore, it was a
golden age of intellectual achievement climaxed by a great scientific revolution and burst of creativity in the arts and literature.
