Reform of the Church
This unit enables students to critically analyse and evaluate the history of the Reformation era, so that they may better understand the Lutheran tradition as a movement for evangelical reform within the church catholic. Students will engage with the late medieval period, through the various European reformations to the end of the sixteenth century. This study will include a special focus on the career of Martin Luther and the Lutheran reformation but will also include the reform movements led by Zwingli and Calvin; the radical reformers; the expansion of the reformation movement in Europe; Catholic renewal; and the legacies of reformations.
