Jerusalem: City of God, City of Fire (Portable Professor Series)

Overview

Eighteenth-century Europe saw a flowering of ideas that shook the social and political order to its very foundations.

Overview

Eighteenth-century Europe saw a flowering of ideas that shook the social and political order to its very foundations. Voltaire, Locke, Diderot, and Kant and other great thinkers of the Age of Enlightenment, as this period would come to be known, sought to rid society of the shackles of superstition and ignorance by promoting such then-radical ideas as the inalienable rights of the individual, religious toleration, and the power of reason and science to better mankind. Discussed in the coffee houses, salons, academies, and secret societies of Europe and Britain, Enlightenment ideals influenced the architects of the French Revolution and the founding fathers of the United States, and would go on to become the foundation of modern political, economic, and social theory. In this fascinating course, Professor James Schmidt explores the great thinkers and ideas — as well as the controversies — of this intellectually rich period in history.

    This is it

    Outstanding. Peters is one of the best teachers I have ever had and I have never met him or enrolled in a course. He explains the History of Jerusalem in a subjective manner, he never gives his opinion only what the jews, Christians and Muslams thought and believed/s in. When I was younger I felt I was not smart enough learn the History of religion. But through Peters I have Just read his 2 volume book, Titled Monoththeists:Jews, Christians, and Muslims in Conflict and Competion. I feel that every one should listen to both of his Portable Professor series, start with Jerusalem: City of God. And should read his books. I have always been interested in Religion and through peters I have greater understandig.

    I learned how much I didn't know

    I liked this series of lectures so much that I'm buying his set of lectures on the Jews, the Christians and the Muslims. This is a very good introduction that respects faith without advocating any creed. It cleared up some of my muddled thinking about the Jerusalem of the Bible, the division of ancient Israel, and the sequence of various events that became jumbled together in my disorganized mind. A good atlas will help you follow his discussion. I bought Karen Armstrong's book about Jerusalem after finishing this course.
