A Sourcebook of Early Modern European History contains 79 short essays, each comprised of a primary source (of a manageable length and translated into English) and an explanation of the source's context and meaning. Spanning the period from c. 1450 to c. 1750 and including primary sources from across early modern Europe, from Spain to Transylvania, Italy to Iceland, and the European colonies, this book provides an excellent sense of the diversity and complexity of human experience during this time whilst drawing attention to key themes and events of the period. It is ideal for students of early modern history, and of early modern Europe in particular. Published in honor of Susan C. Karant-Nunn, Director Emerita of the Division for Late Medieval and Reformation Studies and Regents' Professor Emerita of History at the University of Arizona.
About Rachel Small
I am a PhD student in the Division for Late Medieval and Reformation Studies, studying under Dr. Ute Lotz-Heumann, Dr. Marjorie (Beth) Plummer, and Dr. Susan Karant-Nunn. In 2019-2020, I will be completing my dissertation research in Germany as a Fulbright IIE Student Scholar (Research). My dissertation examines the impact that natural disasters had on communities of religious co-existence, where both Protestants and Catholics lived amongst one another, in the early modern period (ca. 1520-1750).
In 2016 I founded the UA History Department Journal, Footnotes: A Journal of History, and reamined one of the co-managing editors for the first three years of its publication.
