  Early modern Europe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The early modern period is characterized by the rise to importance of science and increasingly rapid technological progress, secularized civic politics and the nation state.
The beginning of the early modern period is not clear-cut, but is generally accepted to be in the late 15th century or early 16th century.
The expression "early modern" is sometimes, and incorrectly, used as a substitute for the term Renaissance.

 Historical Roots of Early Modern Europe
Early Modern Europe is the name given to an era of European history which began in 1648 following the end of the Thirty Years War and the Treaty of Westphalia.
The process of modernization, involving the accumulation of a surplus, led to the creation of a class of merchants and craftsmen which constituted a middle class, i.e., a class in the middle between the aristocracy and the peasantry.
The early modern period was a period of transition when the bureacracy was in its infancy and the collection of the king's taxes was often disrupted at the regional level.

Some time in the 15th or 16th century, depending on what part of Europe and what aspect of society one is considering, the medieval era came to an end.
Europe entered onto a world market, fueled by a fantastic supply of bullion from the New World, and the repercussions transformed European economics forever.
And through all this, the governments and ruling elite of Europe, the noble classes, sought fiercely and sometimes desperately to control and contain the forces of change.

 ScienceDaily: Earliest European Farmers Left Little Genetic Mark On Modern Europe
The farmers who brought agriculture to central Europe about 7,500 years ago did not contribute heavily to the genetic makeup of modern Europeans, according to the first detailed analysis of ancient DNA extracted from skeletons of early European farmers.
The other 18 early farmers belonged to lineages not useful for investigating the genetic origins of modern Europeans because their genetic signatures from the scrutinized region of mitochondrial DNA are widespread in living humans, according to the authors.
Using the tools of population genetics and a worldwide database of 35,000 modern DNA samples, the researchers investigated the genetic legacy of early European farmers based on the fact that six of the 24 early European farmers are from a lineage that is now extremely rare in Europe and around the world.

 Lecture 1: Modern European Intellectual History - An Introduction
There are numerous historians who assert that what is truly "modern" consists of that period of time encompassing a few generations, or roughly 75-100 years.
Other historians, more traditionally I think, posit modern Europe as that period which followed the greatest social and political upheaval of the 18th century: the French Revolution of 1789-1794 and the Industrial Revolution of Great Britain.
Or, as one modern historian of the period has put it: Europe after WWI was like a broken watch.

 Lecture 1: On the Intellectual History of Modern Europe
The walls of the boxes became windows, then doors and finally, about three hundred years ago, 1687 to be exact, a man by the name of Isaac Newton destroyed the whole thing only to replace it with a more reasonable and rational model he called natural philosophy which today we call science or technology.
So, it's no accident that the majority of what are now modern social sciences were founded in the 18th century: geography, anthropology, political science, political economy, sociology, psychology and, of course, history.
By 1848, a revolutionary year throughout Europe, two exiled Germans by the name of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, discovered scientific laws, based again on the Newtonian paradigm along with a dash of Hegelian philosophy, that determined that industrial capitalism would, by historical necessity, cease to exist.

The religious earthquake unleashed by Martin Luther not only shattered the religious unity of Medieval civilization, but its aftershocks continued to rattle European society for most of the 16th and 17th centuries and are still continuing to be felt to this day.
The Renaissance and Reformation were two of the most important movements that shaped the Early Modern period, and taken together they certainly can be seen as marking the end of the Middle Ages.
We are still living with the legacies of these developments, and to understand them fully we must first learn about their roots in Early Modern Europe.

In acceding to the Publishers' request for a re-issue of the "History of Modern Europe," in the form of a popular edition, I feel that I am only fulfilling what would have been the wish of the Author himself.

Not a bit of it--it had prospered chiefly in Germany, where it fell first under the baleful influence of Nazism, and then, after World War II, ironically, it was considered in Germany suspiciously nationalistic, as German dance moved towards the more culturally neutral ground of classic ballet.
American modern choreographers such as Glen Tetley, John Butler, and Anna Sokolow were in constant demand, especially in Holland and England.
Where Europe has excelled is in promoting, after the early examples of, say, Tetley, classically trained "midstream" choreographers, such as Jiri Kylian, Christopher Bruce, Hans van Manen, and, for that matter, the Americans William Forsythe and John Neumeier, who are today more European than American.

Once Europe became split into Catholic and Protestant nations, the Index had the unexpected effect of boosting sales for books listed on the Index, making some protestant printers their fortunes.
I knew that "modern" Europe consisted of institutions based upon the "individual" -- protestantism, capitalism, universal education and modern science -- and that these first arose in Europe about 500 years ago.
Eisenstien highlights how the printing press defined the linguistic and cultural borders of present-day Europe, encouraged the use and teaching of the vernacular, and eliminated Latin as the international tongue of the educated classes.

Rare indeed is the historical monograph that merits the encomium "definitive study" which at the same time makes a substantial methodological contribution.
Drawing upon hundreds of martyr pamphlets and songs, martyrologies, and theological treatises written by Protestant, Anabaptist, and Catholic believers during the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, Gregory seeks to reconstruct fundamental religious sensibilities so as to understand the meaning and assess the significance of martyrdom during the Reformation era.
Gregory notes that conclusions derived from these theories often reveal more about modern interpreters' materialist assumptions or values than about the nature of religious experience in the past.
