Andrew Keitt


I am a historian specializing in the cultural and intellectual history of early modern Europe, with a focus on sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Spain. I am the author of Inventing the Sacred: Imposture, Inquisition, and the Boundaries of the Supernatural in Golden Age Spain, along with numerous other articles and book chapters.

I teach classes ranging from surveys of Western Civilization to upper-division seminars on topics such as the Renaissance and Reformation and the Spanish Inquisition to graduate seminars on the cognitive science of religion, and have introduced innovative teaching methods at UAB, such as Team-Based Learning and Reacting to the Past.
