The Reformation: Exploring Past & Present

Throughout 2017 churches throughout the world marked the 500th anniversary of the start of what we call ‘the Reformation’, when the Augustinian Friar Martin Luther posted a set of Ninety-five theses for scholarly debate on the door of the church in Wittenberg Germany. So, ‘whether we like it or not’, writes Peter Marshall in his Oxford Illustrated History of the Reformation (OUP, 2017), ‘we are all children of the Reformation’. This Faith Forum series will introduce momentous shifts that took place in European Christianity in the sixteenth century, English Christianity included, and will end with consideration of ecumenical developments that seek to move us all beyond the Reformation’s legacy of division.
