Event Title

A History of Innovation and Reformation: Francis Bacon, Edward VI, and the Impact of Religion on Innovation

Location

Cremona 201

Description

Innovation, or the capacity to be flexible and creative in work and life, has become a buzzword of the 21st Century, an essential but nebulous trait expected in today's society. Innovation was not always as heralded a term; in 1548 King Edward VI issued A Proclamation Against Those That Doeth Innovate, a statement against what he and many in the English Protestant Church saw as the dissolution of rites and traditions inherent to worship. Today, innovation is held in such esteem it is difficult to imagine a different time. For this we have much to give to Sir Francis Bacon, whose 1604 epistle Of Innovations puts the context of the positive potential of innovation with an understanding of scripture and God's work. This session will explore the relationship between Bacon, the English Protestant Church and how his innovation of 1604 would be seen in 2017.
