COURSE DESCRIPTION: The Protestant Reformations of the sixteenth century saw Christianity dramatically shift and expand to become the world’s largest religion. This course covers the compelling stories and personalities that have created the colourful history of five centuries. Major shifts and movements including theological debates, controversies, colonialization, globalization, feminist spirituality, and ecumenism will be addressed. With this journey through Christianity’s complex and dynamic past, you will place yourself within a broad and ecumenical perspective. While gaining a larger understanding of global issues, you will have the opportunity to also deepen your knowledge of your own roots and tradition.

This new course offering is intended to make theological education accessible to a wider range of students and lay people than the regular programs of the Montreal School of Theology. It is a rich opportunity for those:

  • seeking deeper understanding of Christian faith and spiritual enrichment; and/or
  • wishing to pursue graduate theological education without earning a degree; and/or
  • thinking about ordained ministry, but wishing to discern a call by trying some courses first
