CH 508 The Radical Reformation
Where the Protestants wanted reform, the Radicals wanted separation. This course examines those groups of the Reformation era that sought a complete break from the Catholic Church. Following a topical and historical progression, learners study the beginning of the movement, its development, and its various manifestations. Students gain insight into those tensions between the Radicals and the Reformers that led to the rise of divisions within the church. The goal of the course is to understand more fully the “shifts” that have formed within the history of the church, enabling them to minister more effectively to contemporary church audiences.
