The institute is intended for colleagues in the humanities who teach survey courses in west and world or world history, and who want to deepen their knowledge of the key themes of the Reformation, connect these themes to broader topics in west and world history, and learn from experts in the field how to make the Reformation and its significance come alive in undergraduate classrooms. Topics covered include the theology of the Reformation, lay piety, issues of church and state and church discipline, the role of women, the impact of printing, art and iconoclasm, and the impact of the Reformation in its various forms in areas where different cultures and religions met, especially in Eastern Europe.
The institute will be directed by Karin Maag, the Director of the Meeter Center for Calvin Studies at Calvin College. Visiting lecturers include Robin Barnes from Davidson College in North Carolina, Ward Holder from Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire, Henry Luttikhuizen from Calvin College, Graeme Murdock from the University of Birmingham in England, Charles Parker from Saint Louis University in Missouri, Larissa Taylor from Colby College in Maine, and Merry Wiesner-Hanks from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
