Wednesday Evening Service,  July 23, 2008

This session continues to track the influence of Aristotelianism into the Renaissance and ends with a look at one writer in the Reformation. When we think of the Renaissance, with think of advancements in arts and inventions and culture. However, the Renaissance was primarily a philosophical movement driven by an Aristotelian desire to fervently examine the world. We examine both the secular and the ecclesiastical expressions of this philosophy, commonly known as “humanism,” and end with a reading of some of John Calvin’s Institutes.
