Clear and Present Danger podcast – The great disruption: Part 2

By August 9, 2018

In episode 11, we continue to survey the wreckage after hurricane Luther was unleashed on Europe with the Reformation. When the Reformation mutated and spread across the continent,  burning questions arose: Could people of different faiths live together in the same state? Should social peace be based on tolerance or intolerance? We look into those and other questions such as:

  • How did other Protestant reformers like Calvin and Zwingli react to religious dissent?
  • In what manner did English and continental censorship laws differ?
  • How did the Catholic Church react to the Reformation?
  • Which states were the first to formalize religious tolerance?
  • How did the scientific and philosophical ideas of Galileo and Giordano Bruno conflict with the religious monopoly on truth, and what were the repercussions?
