    Hello forum,
    Which is correct?
    1. between the 14th and 18th century
    2. between the 14th and 18th centuries

    From other posts (and the Chicago Manual of Style 9.33), these are correct:
    from the 14th to 18th century
    – in the 14th and 18th centuries
    – in the 14th or 18th century

    Thanks! –Erik

    I would say (2) because your referring to two different centuries (plural) as the start and end points of the range.
