The Reformation at 500: Luther and his Legacy

Starting on October 04, 2017 4:30 pm

October 2017 marks 500 years since Martin Luther, an obscure German monk, started a protest against Church teaching on indulgences and launched what came to be known as the Reformation. Everyone recognises this as a landmark event in European, and world, history. But all aspects of the story remain deeply controversial – there is even doubt over whether Luther ever nailed 95 Theses to a church door in Wittenberg.  

A panel of historians from the University of Warwick – all experts on different aspects of the Reformation in Europe and the British Isles – will seek to show how the legacy of the Reformation remains of profound relevance to society today. 

Participants: Professor Bernard Capp, Professor Beat Kümin, Professor Peter Marshall, Dr Naomi Pullin and Dr Lucy Underwood.
