Reformation 500: The Origins and Beginnings of the Protestant Reformation

Friday 2.30 - 4.30

This course will seek to identify the roots of the Protestant Reformation and trace the development of Protestantism in the generation that followed Martin Luther’s protest in Europe in 1517. We shall study topics such as medieval piety and devotion on the eve of the Reformation, the challenge to papal power and authority, Luther’s ideas, Zwingli and the beginnings of the Swiss Reformation in Zurich, and the emergence of the radical Anabaptists.
