Between 1500-1650, Christianity in the Reformation dramatically changed Western Europe. Modern Christian pluralism took shape. Catholicism persisted and was renewed; various forms of Protestantism were born and institutionalized; and a wide range of radical forms of Protestantism emerged. We will attempt to understand each of these strands on their own terms and in conflict with one another. And try to provide an international perspective on early modern Protestantism, radical Protestantism, and Roman Catholicism in their complex social, political, and cultural contexts. We will then examine how their differences and conflicts contributed decisively to the emergence of modern ideas and institutions.
