- Your children must understand the deep issues of this time period! It was such a crossroad! They will see two different responses develop to the spiritual emptiness of the late Middle Ages--an emptiness quite like that of our own age, so we can learn much.

- Ideally for Grades 5-12, but younger siblings can participate. Includes book recommendations for all ages, where available.
