HIST 230 - Print and Controversy


Unit(s): 4

How did Catholicism go from the dominant religion of Europe to a minority presence in places like Germany and England? It involved a technological revolution and the first successful multimedia campaign in history. In this class, we will look more closely at this complex history while also learning about how to work with early printed books as historical sources. We learn about how printed controversies fit into the worldview of learned and popular Europeans of the time; how these controversies continue to reverberate even in modern American society; and how working with primary sources can help you become more astute and informed consumers of “news” during the political and cultural controversies of our day.
