The Meaning and Legacy of the Protestant Reformation on the 500th Anniversary"

We mark this year the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, which, according to most historians, was sparked when Martin Luther posted the 95 Theses on the Wittenberg church door. (According to the story, the date of the posting was October 31, 1517.) The Gonzaga Socratic Club will commemorate the anniversary with a panel discussion of the historical context, meaning, and legacy of the Protestant Reformation. Themes to be addressed include the nature of reformation and reformation initiatives within the church in the 1500s and 1600s, ecclesiastical authority and individualism, the nature of faith, and the role of faith and reason in religious commitment.
