Middle Ages, Renaissance, Reformation, & Epistles


With these books your family will spend a delightful time getting to know the people, events, places, and culture of the Middle Ages around the world, plus the Renaissance and Reformation. Geography will focus on South and Central America and Australia, and you will begin to work your way through the epistles of the Bible. (Since the Bible history narratives are the focus in our three Ancients studies, the rest of the Bible books are spread throughout the remaining three studies.) Older students will learn how to study the Bible on their own, focusing on the same epistles that the Family does, and work on a six-year project of looking for doctrinal truths as they read through the Bible.
