Professor Prud’homme explores the Protestant Reformation, the 16th century cultural earthquake that divided Christendom. He’ll start with the motives driving Martin Luther to nail his Ninety-five Theses to a church-house door, launching rebellion against the authority of the Catholic Church. The Lutheran Church he founded soon prompted emergence of other Protestant faiths, and the unified face of Christianity shattered. A Catholic counter-reformation followed, as did decades of religious wars. In time, the excesses of religious passion abetted the dawn of an age of “Enlightenment” and a surge in secular thought. Let OLLI and Professor Prud’homme steer you through these tumultuous events and show you how they helped shape the world we now inhabit.
