Supplies and Books required: The Mystery of History Volume III: The Renaissance, Reformation, and Growth of Nations by Linda Lacour Hobar
Volume 3 of The Mystery of History covers world history from the years of the Renaissance and Reformation which were years of growth and change for both the world and the church. The Mystery of History, Volume III presents the years 1455-1707 through Christ-centered lens, exploring the backdrop to and significance of major cultural and historical people and events, alongside these events in the history of Christianity. Some include Ivan the Great, Michelangelo, Martin Luther, John Calvin, Ivan the Terrible, William Tyndale, Mary Tudor (Bloody Mary), William Shakespeare, Rembrandt, Sir Isaac Newton, The Salem Witch Trials and more!
Students are required to read an average of three lessons per week, and be prepared to discuss them. The children will enjoy hands on history as we bring these events to life - sometimes tasting food from that country/culture, acting out the events, playing games, crafts and more! This class is structured so that it fits all the different ages and allows the parents to decide how lightly or deeply to go in each lesson. All pretests, tests and exercises (worksheets) are up to the parents to give and grade, if desired. The goal is to help the children find a love of history, not by listing the facts and memorizing the dates, but understanding what happened and why that is important. (It is not necessary to complete Volume 2 before Volume 3.)
