Historian and Memoirist
opens the 2018 season of
Theology on Tap with reflections on:
“Transforming the Supernatural in the Reformation”
One of the most significant changes brought about by the Protestant Reformation was a redefinition of the relation between the natural and supernatural realms, which amounted to a redefinition of religion itself. How did this redefinition shape the various churches created in this era? How did it affect the Church of England? How does it affect us today?
Prof. Eire is the T. Lawrason Riggs Professor of History and Religious Studies at Yale University and the author of numerous books, including most recently the magisterial Reformations: The Early Modern World, which won the R. R. Hawkins Prize for Best Book of the Year from the American Publishers Association, as well as the award for Best Book in the Humanities. He is also the author of the best-selling memoir Waiting for Snow in Havana: Confessions of a Cuban Boy, which won the National Book Award for Non-Fiction.
