CHHT 540 Classic Texts of the English Reformation

[3]

The English Reformation of the sixteenth century generated authoritative printed documents that came to have continuing authority or influence among later Anglicans, documents such as the “Thirty-Nine Articles” and “The Book of Common Prayer.” This course will study several of those documents closely in their historical context. It will not analyze the English Reformation as a social and political process of religious change, but rather to consider the foundational statements of English Protestantism, which have had (at least nominal) continuing authority among Anglicans.
