This excellent addition to the Lion Histories series explores one of the most interesting periods of history - the Enlightenment of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The book begins by describing how the Middle Ages came to an end with the Renaissance and the Reformation, setting the scene for the Enlightenment. Jonathan Hill then takes the reader on a fascinating tour of the central themes and characters of this turbulent period.
