The Unintended Reformation: How a Religious Revolution Secularized Society

Brad S. Gregory, Professor, Department of History

Professor Gregory discusses his new book, The Unintended Reformation, which shows how the unsolved doctrinal disagreements and concrete religio-political conflicts of 16th- and 17th-century Europe continue to influence American political, social, intellectual, and economic life today. In unexpected and mostly unacknowledged ways, the distant past of the Reformation era illuminates the character of the present.
