Luther College Examines the Reformation and Its Continuing Impact

  • Date: Tuesday, October 31, 2017
  • Time: All day

Luther College celebrates the 500th anniversary of the Reformation in 2017 with a year full of events on campus.

What was the Reformation? What impact did it have on Christianity, the Church, education, broader society and culture? How has it shaped Luther College? What might its influence look like in the future?

On October 31, 2017, the five-hundredth anniversary of the beginning of the Reformation, Luther College will devote the entire community's energies to an investigation of the Reformation, its historical impact, and its continuing influence in religion, education, academic disciplines, social and political thought, art and music, and many other areas of life.

Professor Brad Gregory of the University of Notre Dame will address an opening convocation with a presentation entitled "Why the Reformation Still Matters (Whether We Want It to or Not)." Marty Haugen '73, renowned composer of liturgical music for both Catholics and Protestants, will offer workshops. And faculty from across the disciplines as well as other members of the broader Luther community will present, perform, and discuss the Reformation and its varied legacies.

This event is open to the public with no charge for admission. Further details to follow.
