History II covers World and Church History from the Fall of Rome through the Renaissance. Chronologically speaking, it starts with the demise of the last Western Roman Emperor in AD 476 and ends around 1600.

On the World History side, this year starts with a review of the Roman Empire. The first fifteen weeks focus on Western Europe, with side trips to the Middle East for the rise of Islam and the Holy Land Crusades. Then came several weeks in Asia, with chapters on India, China, Japan, Mongolia and more. After a chapter on medieval Africa, Year Two moves on to the Age of Exploration,
Christopher Columbus and the conquistadors. Then came three weeks on the Protestant Reformation, the Renaissance in Art and the Renaissance in Science. We end the year back in Western Europe, where we spend four weeks with King Henry VIII of England and his three children: Edward VI, Mary I and Elizabeth I.

On the Church History side, Year Two starts with some of the early Christians who were martyred under the Roman Empire. Then came the monastic movement and the early days of the Orthodox and Roman Catholic Church. Controversies and schisms play a big part in History II. We cover the Great Schism between East and West, the Western Schism within the Church itself, and several
others. We end the year with the biggest schism of all: the one that began with the Protestant Reformation. While reading about many Orthodox Saints.
