March 28th, 2017. The Public Discourse Project Seminar: Robert Ingram (Ohio University)

Reformation Without End: Religion, Politics and the Past, Then and Now.
This talk considers polemical divinity in Enlightenment England and its potential relevance for public debate today. The talk explains why we should think of the English Enlightenment not as the first chapter in the story of secular modernity but rather as a late chapter in the story of the Reformation. In addition, it considers how conceiving of England’s Enlightenment in that way might help us to think differently about public discourse today.
