This course is designed to study the changing role of the Christian Churches in European society from 1700 to the present. It focuses on key turning points in the history of Christianity including the rise of Pietism and Methodism, the Enlightenment, the French and Industrial Revolutions, the Great Awakenings in America, Christian missions, and the movements and crises of the twentieth century. By studying the ways Christianity has adapted to social, economic and intellectual change in the past three hundred years, the course will provide a basis for a clearer appraisal of the role and problems of the churches in society today.
