View all THEO classes

Surveys the dramatic changes in science, philosophy, and Christianity in the Western tradition 1500-1700. This is the era of the contemporaneous events we call "The Scientific Revolution" and "The Reformations." This course is a selective historical tour of the maturing of physical science (especially astronomy and cosmology) in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and the parallel developments in Christianity as the new Protestant denominations were breaking away from the historic Catholic Church. We will investigate and evaluate connections, interactions, and influences between science and religion. May be repeated for credit 2 times.
