Throughout the course of this podcast, few topics are going to remain more closely tied to the politics of the United States than religion. Religion is going to be a driving force behind so much of American politics, that often you cannot easily separate the two from each other. This week we are going to continue our survey of Europe in the 16th century by looking at the Reformation. The Reformation is going to change the religious landscape in Europe and will ultimately have a major impact on the religion that we see emerge in the North American colonies. We are going to focus primarily on Martin Luther and his role this week, though we are also going to be spending time back in England for the far more pragmatic English Reformation.
growth. I then have started at the beginning. So far it’s been great. I spent more time than you may have expected, pen in hand, taking notes on your first two podcasts to get the foundation (probably not necessary but I was curious....). Only request is that there is a way to flip the sequence of play so I don’t have to monkey with my phone as I binge on your production. (On the road QUITE a lot). Great job! I hope you get as much out of the podcast as I do! 🤠
