Church History 2 (Reformation to Today) (TH2)
In the 1500s the Protestant Reformation turned the Western world upside down and inside out. In a very real way, almost all significant historical events in the West since that time have either been in support of the values and goals of the Reformation or a reaction against it. Our class will examine what led to the Protestant Reformation, the main characters and events of that time and how it has shaped the church and the world ever since.
