Christendom: The Reformation: Post Tenebras Lux, introduces students to the great minds of the Reformation: John Calvin, Martin Luther, Thomas Cranmer, Erasmus, Spense, and Chaucer. But a study of this tumultuous period of history would be sorely lacking without a thorough understanding of the historical setting of the Reformation. Wesley Callihan and Dr. Chris Schlect team up to lay a solid foundation for understanding the origins and struggles of the Reformation, as well as its theology and influence. Students will read part of Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion, as well as Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales and Spenser’s Faerie Queene.
