Between the advent of printing, the Copernican Revolution, the origins of capitalism, the development of university thought, and the ?discovery? of the New World, early modern Christians began to reconsider their religious beliefs, practices, doctrines, and institutions. This course will study the period between 1450 to 1650 C.E., including the Protestant Reformations; the Catholic Reformation; Radical Reformers; colonization, evangelization, and Inquisition; witchcraft and the supernatural; the fate of religion in the ?scientific? and ?enlightened? early modern period.
