Catholic Counter-Reformation: Crash Course European History #9 (2)

still not finished with the repercussions of this questioning and the responses to it.

These religious upheavals weren't just about how to get into heaven; they were also about

who should learn and how, and what constituted an effective human life.

We are still in the shadow of those who modeled new ideas of what matters in human life

We'll have much more to say about Catholicism and the role of organized religion in people's

lives, but first….next week we dig into the world of witchcraft, shamans, magic, and

alchemy, which were also important belief systems in early modern Europe and ones that

co-existed with Christianity.

That's right, friends, it will soon be time to turn lead into gold and frog eyes into

hex potions.

I'll see you then.
