About

Come and study in two of the most exciting cities of Europe: Rome and Utrecht! In this Founding Europe - From Antiquity to the 19th Century course from Utrecht Summer School you will dive into the exhilarating history of Europe, from the rise of civilization in Antiquity to the modern era of the 19th century. 

Overview

Together, this Founding Europe - From Antiquity to the 19th Century course from Utrecht Summer School will provide you with a thorough knowledge of the history of these cities and nations, as well as an exciting overview of the history and workings of Europe. 

During the first two weeks you will be introduced to Roman and Italian history, studying its fascinating political, religious and cultural development in relation to Europe. We will explore the city of Rome, enjoying its remarkable architecture, art and museums. 

Features

After treating the Renaissance and Baroque period, we will even glimpse ahead shortly to Mussolini’s Rome.

The next two weeks you will spend in the beautiful city of Utrecht, studying the history of Europe from a Dutch perspective. We will study for example the Dutch Golden Age; the era spanning roughly the 17th century in which the Dutch became one of the world’s greatest maritime, economic and artistic world powers after rebelling against their Spanish rulers. 

As with the Rome course, Utrecht will provide you with a strongly interactive course programme, visiting several historical museums in Utrecht, the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and the thirteenth-century royal palace in The Hague where the Dutch government is seated today. 

Programme Structure

Courses included:

  • During classes we will treat topics like the Roman Republic and its transition into imperial rule, ancient religion - including the birth of Christianity - and the Middle Ages that followed the fall of the Roman Empire and were characterized by religious and secular strive. After treating the Renaissance and Baroque period, we will even glimpse ahead shortly to Mussolini’s Rome.
