HIST 379 RELIGION IN MODERN EUROPE *3 (0-3s-0)

The period since 1789 has been one of both secularization and of great popular religious revival in Europe. This lecture course explores some important themes in the history of religion as it was experienced by the people of Europe in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Among the questions we will examine are: Why did religion become a "question" after the French Revolution? How was religious life shaped by the processes of modernization? How, in turn, did religion affect how these processes were experienced? How do we measure religious belief? What is the role of religion in the modern world?

HIST 394 HISTORY OF ASTRONOMY & COSMOLOGY FROM STONEHENGE TO THE SPACE AGE *3 (3-0-0) 

The course explores a variety of key topics in the history of astronomy and cosmology from the earliest times to the present day, starting with Stonehenge and the astronomy and cosmology of early cultures. These topics will lead into Chinese and Islamic astronomy and the astronomy of the Latin West. A central theme of the rest of the course will be the changing views of astronomers on the large-scale structure and origin of the universe. In particular, we will discuss how these views have been shaped by the availability of new and different kinds of telescopes, including the Hubble Space Telescope. While we will be concerned with the shifting ideas about astronomical objects and the nature of the universe, we will also be addressing the social, political, economic and cultural contexts of, and issues involved in, astronomy and cosmology.
