Teaching the Reformation after Five Hundred Years

A three-week institute for twenty-five college and university faculty on the Reformation.

From its inception nearly 500 years ago, the Reformation shook up western society by challenging the status-quo and offering diverse perspectives on the relations between political and religious powers, the role of authority, and the place and price of uniformity versus toleration. This three-week institute for college and university teachers is designed to foster high-quality instruction on the Reformation by equipping participants with the content-based knowledge, teaching resources, and points of connection between key Reformation-era debates and issues of the common good still at stake today. Topics covered include the pre-Reformation context, the Lutheran, Anabaptist/Radical, Calvinist/Reformed, Catholic, and English and Scottish Reformations alongside cross-confessional issues that continue to resonate today: the impact of women and gender, repercussions on political authority and the right of resistance, and the place of toleration in a context of competing truth claims.
