Crotty Lecture - Christian Origins in Early Modern Europe: The Birth of a New Kind of History
Dec 07, 2017

Thursday, 7:30 p.m.

In the 16th century, the unified Latin Christianity of the Middle Ages broke apart. New Protestant churches and a reformed Catholic church created new theologies, new liturgies, and new ways of imagining what early Christian life and worship were like. Anthony Grafton, professor of history at Princeton University, discusses how the new histories were ideological in inspiration and controversial in style, but nonetheless represented a vital set of innovations in western ways of thinking about and representing the past. Free; no reservations required. Rothenberg Hall

 

Pre-lecture dining: Small plates and beverages will be available in the Rose Hills Garden Court outside Rothenberg Hall beginning at 6:30 p.m. before each lecture. (The 1919 café will be closed.)
