A review of events in Europe from 1500 to 1650, focusing on religious reform movements that ultimately divided the Christian Church into Catholic and Protestant denominations. Topics to be addressed include the context of the northern European Renaissance; the movements of various Protestant reformers, including Luther, Calvin, Henry VIII, and the radical reformers; the Catholic Reformation, including the Council of Trent and the early history of the Society of Jesus; the role of the state in religious reform; and religious conflicts up to and including the 30 Years War.
