Course Title: The European Reformation
Course Description: This course examines one of the most important movements in European history, from its first medieval rumblings to the ‘Counter-Reformation’, including discussion of such towering figures as Erasmus, Luther, Zwingli, Calvin, Knox and Cranmer. This is a subject that still arouses intense passions, and I shall try to be fair to all sides. The topics to be covered are: The medieval beginnings, Erasmus, Luther, The spread of the Reformation in Europe, Calvin, The French wars of religion, The English reformation, John Knox, The ‘Elizabethan settlement', The Counter-reformation. Note: In addition to the normal half term break, there will be a one week gap in the first half of the term, date to be confirmed in due course.
