Saturday Scholar Series: The Unintended Reformation: How a Religious Revolution Secularized Society


Location: Snite Museum of Art, Annenberg Auditorium

Brad S. Gregory, professor, Department of History

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.

You are invited to experience an intimate discussion with Notre Dame’s most engaging faculty speakers on some of the most pressing and fascinating issues of our times. Each lecture and Q-and-A is presented on “home game” Saturdays. This week’s game is Notre Dame vs. University of Pittsburgh.

No tickets are required.
