20 Credits SPRING

Pre-requisites: Pass in at least two Level One History Units HST112-119

Aims/Description: Different religious faiths have coexisted in Europe for centuries. Yet religious violence occurred repeatedly across Europe until the 18th century. Historians have largely focussed on the policies implemented by political and religious authorities in explaining these events. While addressing group culture in general and the contributions of social groups to the institutionalisation of values in a religious context, the seminar aims to trace the possibility and the limitations of religious pluralism in Europe between the 12th and the 16th centuries. This long term perspective will contribute a novel approach to the history of the Reformation.
