  1. That depends upon how you define "the modern age." How does your textbook author or instructor define the modern age?

  2. All it says is "Because of the important developments that shaped life as we know it today in the West, historians trace the beginnings of the "Modern Age" from these times. This pre-modern period begins with the Renaissance in about A.D. 1350 and ends with the French Revolution and Napoleonic Wars in 1815."

  3. Go back to the paragraphs before. To what does the author refer when he says "from THESE times?"

    Is it the time before 1350 (which I doubt)? Or is it the time after the pre-modern period -- about 1815?

    Is it the Industrial Revolution?
