Skrócony opis: (tylko po angielsku)

This course focuses on the intellectual, practical, and social history of the spread of Christianity throughout the world during the early modern period, ca. 1400 – ca. 1800. Students will engage primary and secondary sources concerning Christian belief, practice, and cultural influence in Europe, Africa, the Americas, and Asia.

Pełny opis: (tylko po angielsku)

Classes will explore, illuminate, and analyze the foremost materials, themes, and problems in the study of the history of early modern Christianity. Students will become acquainted with historical contexts, conflicts, resolutions, and historiographical debates, both among Christians and between Christians and non-Christians. They will use lectures and secondary readings to create literary contexts, and within those contexts they will analyze relevant primary sources in order to practice drawing their own conclusions about the global spread and diversification of Christianity during the early modern period.

The first section of the course will focus on the Reformation period in Europe. Subsequent sections will trace the spread of Latin Christianity around the world, first to Africa, then to the Americas, then to Asia. Another section will examine the growth of Orthodox and Eastern Christian societies during the same period. The course will conclude with a section on Christian thought and practice in the context of the Enlightenment.

Both primary and secondary sources will present an array of perspectives with which students will analyze these topics. Texts concerning Europeans, Africans, Asians, Native Americans, men, women, and slaves will enable students to perceive the heterogeneity of Christian experiences in the early modern world. Through discussion and written assignments, students will learn to analyze diverse texts in context and draw informed, well-supported, and well-argued conclusions about the material.
