Glossary Definitions on The Reformation

About This Assignment

This glossary will be a class-wide effort over the course of the semester. Between the beginning of classes on March 9 and the end of classes on May 3, each student in this course will be expected to contribute 3 unique glossary entries based on vocabulary you encounter in your readings and lessons. No duplicate terms will be allowed: in the case of conflicting terms, whoever posted the term first will receive the points for it.

Each glossary entry must include the following information:

  1. A full and complete definition of the term, in your own words. Simply copying a definition from another source will not be accepted. Aim for 1-3 sentences.
  2. An indication of where the term is discussed (in the readings, lessons, or both). This is to help your classmates find the term for further information on it. Include a page number, lesson page title, author, etc. as needed to provide clear directions.
  3. An explanation of why the term is significant for understanding the history of the Reformation period. This may be tricky, but do your best to explain how understanding this term will help us better understand what was happening in this period of history.
  4. Your name, somewhere on the page, you I can give you credit for your work.

I have provided example entries for “blood-libel” and “conciliarism” so you can see what a successful glossary entry might look like.
