The Protestant Reformation

The focus of this course is a key event at the birth of the modern world, the Protestant Reformation.

Bishop Barron believes it is truly important for Catholics to have a substantive understanding of this seminal event. Over the lessons, he will discuss the thought of Martin Luther and John Calvin, the two most important of the Protestant reformers. Then we will look at the Catholic Church's official response to the Reformation at the Council of Trent—a response that was both appreciative and critical.

You will complete the course with a better understanding of the Reformation and a better sense of how to engage our Protestant brothers and sisters.
