The advent of the Modern Age (post-14th century) ushered in a period of religious creativity and individual exploration that challenged not only orthodoxy but religion itself. Faith, scripture, and God were no longer simply objects of devotion; they were now open to moral critique and scientific examination. This course considers the historical impact of these new approaches to religion, and the provocative questions it raised: What if religion is more about feeling than thought? What if belief is about what works rather than what is true? Is the truth of religion even significant for belief?
