Still image from The Protestant Revolution: A Reformation Of The Mind

At the core of the Protestant Revolution was a new emphasis on exploring and questioning the natural world. Shows how a religious upheaval that began a half-millennium ago led to the art, literature, and science of today's Western society. Makes the case that a humanistic approach to art first grew out of the Protestant drive to remove images from European churches in the 16th and 17th centuries. Also examines the development of the modern novel via the Protestant-informed writings of John Bunyan, Daniel DeFoe, and Charles Dickens-then reveals the Protestant underpinnings of Newtonian physics, Darwin's theories, and modern technological culture. Accessibility options on the DVD are: (1) expanded description, (2) English subtitles in a black box.
