HIST720 - RESEARCH SEM: EURO HIST: LONG REFORMATION BRIT/AM

Description: 
The current view of the protestant reform movements in Britain no longer presumes quick acceptance of the new doctrines, even in the south of England or Lowland Scotland; instead, the Reformation is increasingly understood as a gradual cultural transformation that ought to be traced into the early eighteenth century and across traditional borders. This seminar will examine the process of protestantisation in England, Wales, Scotland, and parts of Anglo-Ireland; protestantism's transportation to the British American colonies; and resistance or accommodation in Gaelic Ireland, Northern England, and the Scottish Gaidhealtachd. Readings in recent secondary work and select primary sources will precede work on a short research paper. Instruction in early modern paleography (secretary hand) is included.
