Tanner Talks - Brad Gregory - Society through Religious Revolution
From USU Media Production on February 7th, 2014
Conflict, Community, and Consumption: The Making of Modernity in the Reformation Era The European conflicts over Christian truth in the 16th and 17th centuries tore communities apart and led to fundamental changes in ideas, institutions, and practices that remain influential today. Brad Gregory (Professor of History at the University of Notre Dame) is a leading historian of early modern Europe, and will discuss how the Reformation era led to modern Western societies held together by sovereign nations and shared practices of consumption. The 2013–14 Tanner Talks, a series of cross-disciplinary events focusing on the theme "Knowledge and Community," are a presentation of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences.
