HISTORY of Christian Theology

A broad term for 18th century European intellectual developments, including deism and other movements critical of orthodox Christianity, that are characteristically modern, emphasizing reason against tradition and authority. Refers to the period of intellectual and cultural development in Europe and North America roughly from 1650 to 1800 and receives its title from the emergence of human reason and science as a primary authority and an increased emphasis on human rights.
