The Reformation’s Relationship with Islam

The presentation discussed the relevance of Islam and the Ottoman empire to the early Reformation and Counter-Reformation. Especially emphasized was the relevance of Middle Ages.

Here is a link to a presentation (formatted as a PDF) I gave at the Abigail Adams Institute on October 26, 2018.

The presentation discussed the relevance of Islam and the Ottoman empire to the early Reformation and Counter-Reformation. Especially emphasized was the relevance of Middle Ages on this critical period spanning the 16th century, including the early Arab conquests in western Europe and the rise of Islam in Anatolia.
