"Martin Luther and the Invention of the Reformation"
lease join the Early Modern group for a public lecture by Peter Marshall, Professor of History, University of Warwick on Monday, November 6th at 3:30 pm in 138 DeBartolo Hall.
This year we celebrate the 500th anniversary of one of the most famous events of Western history - Martin Luther's posting of the 95 Theses to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg on October 31, 1517. It inaugurated the Protestant Reformation, and has for centuries been a powerful and enduring symbol of religious freedom of conscience, and of righteous protest against the abust of power. But did it actually really happen? This lecture is co-sponsored by the Nanovic Institute for European Studies, the Department of English Early Modern Group, and the Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study.
