Humanities II Modernity Bookstore

For the 2019-2020 academic year, our history and literature studies will focus on Modernity – an epoch focusing primarily on the 19th and 20th centuries, but with roots extending into the early Enlightenment.


The King’s Meadow Modernity course (Audio DVD)


Families will order from Cheryl Turner in July to receive this reduced co-op pricing.


In the King’s Meadow Modernity course, Dr. George Grant surveys the history, literature, philosophy, theology, and civics of Modernity—an epoch focusing primarily on the 19th and 20th centuries, but with roots extending into the early Enlightenment.

Audio is delivered in MP3 data file format.
