The "Reformation Era Imagery" assignment teaches two skills:
Visual interpretation of a print or painting aka Content Analysis
Contextualization of a print or painting aka Context Analysis
This is a great document to help students skill build towards a DBQ assignment by providing practice on the difference between CONTENT and CONTEXT. Students often confuse these two skills at the start of the year. This document will help students connect a Lutheran wood print with outside events, say the invention of the printing press or the Marburg Colloquy where Luther and Zwingli debate one another over the nature of the sacrament of Eucharist.
The images included cover the different religious divisions that emerge during the Reformation, particularly the:
Duch Calvinist Church (aka Reformed Church)
The document also contains a theological comparison chart at the top outlining the differences between the Lutherans, Catholics, Calvinists and Anabaptists to help students cement their understanding of the different religions. Again, this is a great pre-test activity to review with students in class, or as a homework assignment. I would absolutely recommend sending out the answer key to the students so that they can see good versus developing "Contextualization" examples.
