View all THEO classes

Currently this course focuses on the parallel development of the Scientific Revolution and the Christian Reformations in Europe, 1500s to early 1700s. If Protestants and Roman Catholics were enemies, why was the landmark treatise on heliocentrism (De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium, 1543), written by the Polish mathematician Nicolaus Copernicus, a Roman Catholic canon and church administrator, first published by a Protestant press in Germany? How could a book edited by two Lutheran scholars include a dedication to the Roman Catholic Pope? These and other mysteries will be explored in a search for connections, contrasts, cooperation, and competition. May be repeated for credit up to 10 credits.
