S4 E11: The Reformation Unlimited Opinions - Philosophy & Mythology

    • Philosophy

As punishment for believing that infants shouldn't be baptized, you should be immediately drowned! At least according to Ulrich Zwingli, that is. In this episode, we look at the Reformation, and how the ideas of Martin Luther, Jean Calvin, and various radicals played into the discussion of church and state in Europe. We discuss the economic roots of the Reformation, how the various wars and uprisings were furthered by theological issues but perhaps not caused by them, and some of the more unfortunate aspects of this period in time, including the very bloody wars. We also get into a rant about whether the Counter-Reformation should really by called a Catholic Reformation!  Follow us on Twitter! @UlmtdOpinions
