LTCM 536/HIST 370 Ritual and Worship in the Long English Reformation


This course examines the role of ritual and worship in the religious history of England, ca. 1530 to ca. 1700. It studies the transformation of a traditional religion based on rituals into a religious system based as much on word as on rite. The course draws connections between these religious changes and the larger political, social, and cultural contexts in which they occurred. Students engage in weekly readings and discussion and prepare a research paper.
