This unit develops the students’ historical methodology and research skills, building on fundamental learnings from the first survey (CH1001Y). Applying these skills, it surveys the history of the Church from the Renaissance to the present. Particular emphasis is given to the current historiography of the Long Reformation (14th to 18th Centuries) and its aftermaths, to the Enlightenment, colonialism, the Age of Revolutions, The great age of mission and the Religious developments of the 19th Century in church authority structures and ‘Social Christianity’, as a preface to interpreting twentieth century conflicts, reforms and renewal.
