The Roots of the Reformation

with Thomas Ryan

$35

Most Catholics are surprised to learn that abuse and corruption within the Church may have been the occasion of the  Reformation, but they are not the cause!

We will cover:

  • The historical currents of the 500 years leading up to the Reformation that made reform absolutely necessary
  • The personal angst and passion of Martin Luther, a man desperately seeking salvation
  • Other major players who shaped the Reformation including John Calvin, Ulrich Zwingli, and Philip Melanchthon
  • The cultural and political currents that fanned the spark of Luther's theology into a conflagration that consumed much of Europe
  • How cultural and political forces in the years since the Reformation have shaped Protestantism in ways that Luther himself likely would condemn
  • The core doctrines of traditional Protestantism, how they differ from Catholic doctrine, and how they differ across multiple Protestant denominations today
  • The Catholic Counter-Reformation and the Council of Trent
  • Important Catholic reformers including Pope Paul III, St Ignatius of Loyola, St Teresa of Avila, St John of the Cross, and others

Join with us for a 6-week course designed to deepen our understanding of this critical time in Church history and how its impact continues to shape our modern world.

Course Instructor:  Thomas Ryan, MA (Augustine Institute), MBA (Regis University)
