Read in January, 2006

Re-read January 7, 2010: very textbook-y. I think it was at this point that I began to understand just how very right my peers were when they told me that at some point in my reading, I would begin to be able to tell what the book was going to say before I'd even read it. Admittedly, I'd already read it, but still.

Basically: early modern life organized around ritual; the Reformation reconfigured ritual life in Protestant areas and the Council of Trent placed ritual in Catholic areas more squarely under control of the church; and the Enlightenment changed everything. Obviously.
