Radical Europe – Summer 2017
16th and 21st Century Expressions of Anabaptist/Mennonite Identity
This seminar will explore 16th Century Radical Anabaptism in Austria, Switzerland, and Germany, with a focus on the women and poor people that made the movement.
Discover and confront your own inner-Anabaptist. How do their beliefs speak to you and to the Mennonite church today? Students will explore the tumultuous theological and socio-political contexts that led to the Reformation.
- Understand the theological, social, economic and political contexts and expectations of the Roman Catholic world in 1500’s Europe.
- Learn about modern theo-political contexts in Europe, and Mennonite involvement and responses.
- Gain practical life skills including language, travel, and intercultural awareness.
- Be challenged by the differences between American and European worldviews and resource consumption.
- Language instruction, homestays, walking tours, field trips, directed travel, museum, church, and site visits will frame the learning.
