Anabaptist/MB Studies (HIST 721)

HIST 721

A history of the Anabaptist/Mennonite religious movement and offshoot denominations and their approach to Christian belief and practice. A complex movement of religious and social protest against the abuses found in both church and state, Anabaptists called for a rigorous faith without compromise. The course focuses on understanding the nature of Anabaptist spirituality and the contemporary responses it engendered, as well as the way in which Mennonite denominations and churches have institutionalized Anabaptist principles from the 16th to the 21st century.
