This seminar examines the formative relationship between religion and print in the early modern period. Through lectures, discussions of primary sources, and guided gallery tours of the Newberry’s upcoming major exhibition, Religious Change and Print, 1450-1700, participants will explore how different individuals experienced the tumultuous religious changes of the period and appreciate how religion changed the early modern world through print in ways that continue to shape contemporary thought and society. Eight sessions.
Christopher Fletcher received his PhD in history from the University of Chicago and co-curated Religious Change and Print, 1450-1700 while serving as the Newberry Mellon Major Projects Fellow in 2016-2017.
