Abstract

Europe made the earliest contribution to modern civilisation and modernisation of Europe has long drawn attention from the academic world. This article conducts an investigation into the origin and historical process of modern Europe from a macroscopic perspective, in order to develop better understanding of the connection between European history and modern civilisation. It first illustrates the historical background against which modern Europe originated. Then it interprets the historical process of Europe’s modernisation with respect to economy, culture, politics, and technology. The outcomes and significance of Europe’s modernisation are discussed at the end. This study also reveals obvious continuity of European history and its impact on the modern world.
