History 316 (Hi 16) Reformation Europe

Description of the Course: The Age of the Reformation spanned from the sixteenth to the early seventeenth century. Until the Reformation, all of Europe was nominally united in one Christian Church. After the Age of the Reformation, Christendom became divided. This course will give you an overview of the religious changes that occurred in Europe and the impact of those changes on politics, society and culture. The course is divided into three parts. We will begin by examining the origins of the Protestant and Catholic Reformations. The second part of the course deals with the impact of the Reformation on politics and society after 1550 with special emphasis on France, the Netherlands, England, Scotland and Ireland. During third part of the course we will assess the impact of the Protestant and Catholic Reformations on family life, gender roles, popular culture and society. We will end the course examining the gradual rise of religious toleration in Early Modern Europe.
