ARTH 28.04 Reform and Response in Sixteenth-century Northern Europe

In 1517 Martin Luther nailed the 95 Theses to the door of the castle chapel in Wittenberg. That act was the culmination of decades of frustration with an established Church that, to many believers, had lost its way. What followed was a European debate for the very souls of men. The Reformation brought into question the assumptions by which most Europeans had lived—that the Church’s teachings, personal good actions, and Christ’s sacrifice could insure their salvation. Using the printing press and artworks, both sides presented their positions in propagandistic language that could be both bombastic and subtle. We will look at this central event in the shaping of free will, and how it played out in the art created in Northern Europe at that time.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
