The Early History of the European Concept of Religion (100AD-1600AD).
Why did Europeans barely write about religion (religio) in the Middle Ages? Put differently, why discussing of religion largely absent in the period often described as one of the most religious? Why in European encounters abroad did they not identify the religions of other cultures? What did they see instead? This lecture will trace the Christian conceptual schema that determined the European concepts of religion (idolatry, piety and heresy) in roughly the period from 100AD to 1600AD.

This is the third of a series of lectures for Reddit in which, Jason Ānanda Josephson be discusses the history of the concept of "religion" and investigating debates around its universality.
