Acknowledging the 500th Anniversary of Luther’s Reformation, there will be two lectures by Reformation Historian, Dr. Peter Starkenko.
The first is on Sunday, October 29, Luther After 500 Years, and the second on Sunday, November 5, Luther’s Revolutionary Children. The Second Hour lectures begin at 11:20 am, following a short coffee fellowship.
Luther sent the Theses enclosed with a letter to Albert of Brandenburg, the Archbishop of Mainz, on 31 October 1517, a date now considered the start of the Reformation and commemorated annually as Reformation Day. Luther may have also posted the Theses on the door of All Saints’ Church and other churches in Wittenberg in accordance with University custom.
