The Renaissance and Reformation

 The following is the Project Assignment. It involves reading two specific articles on the Renaissance and Reformation. Your assignment is to write reasonably-detailed summaries of the articles and, in doing so, incorporate answers to the associated questions. Avoid simply paraphrasing the author’s arguments. Explain things in your own words so that I can assess your understanding of the issues presented. This should be written in prose, like an essay, and typed. I do not have a particular length requirement, but these are profound and detailed sources of scholarship so your efforts should reflect this. A) The first reading is from Everyday Renaissances: The Quest for Cultural Legitimacy in Venice, by Sarah Gwyneth Ross (Harvard University Press, 2016). It is a study of the impact on and use of humanism by Venetians in the Renaissance. 1. What were the reading practices of Renaissance Venetians like? What did they read? 2. Did reading habits shape the occupations that people participated in? 3. What is “testamentary humanism” and what is its importance? 4. How did reading shape education during the Renaissance? B) The second reading is an article by Gary Deason, “Reformation Theology and the Mechanistic Conception of Nature” in God and Nature, edited by David Lindberg and Ronald Numbers (University of California Press, 1987), pp. 167-191. It details links between Reformation theology, which emphasized the ultimate power and authority of god and key ideas of the Scientific Revolution. 1. How did Protestants tend to view the relationship between their god and god’s creation? 2. What is the concept of the “radical sovereignty” of god? 3. How does god’s radical sovereignty relate to “mechanistic” science of the Seventeenth Century?
