Prerequisite: Course not open to Freshmen

General Education requirement: Cult & Art Literacy/Global

Traces the reformation movements of the 16th and 17th centuries, the Protestant Reformation and the Catholic Reform. The various strands of this movement were attempts to provide an answer to the fundamental Christian problem: 'What must I do to be saved?' Students study the answers provided to this question by such thinkers as Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin, St. Teresa of Avila, and St. Ignatius Loyola. Students discuss how their ideas affected, and were affected by, contemporary social and political affairs, paying special attention to the appeal of their message to women, the urban working classes, and peasants.
