So remember how the first Great Schism was a big deal because it meant that we wound up with TWO main versions of Christianity back in 1054CE? Well, things are about to get a whole lot more complicated. Calvinists, Anabaptists, and Anglicans, oh my! Luckily, all you have to do is watch a few videos and answer some questions in your packet.
1. Problems in the Papacy, Tickets to Heaven, and the Rise of Individualism.
I’ve seen a lot of documentaries about the Protestant Reformation, but this is one of the best short videos I’ve found on the subject. The history professors talking really know their stuff, so pay attention. It’s probably best to answer the questions in your packet as you watch, with this one.
2. Martin Luther and the Revolt Against the Church.
If there’s one figure you need to really understand in the Protestant Reformation, it’s Martin Luther. Again, it’s probably best to answer the questions as you watch.
3. Time for a Poll!
Let’s see what you think. There’s no right answer, but I will be counting to make sure everyone answers the question.
And one last time, guys. Move on to Task Six: Consequences of the Protestant Reformation.
