Description

Speaker: Thomas Maissen
(Deutsches Historisches Institut Paris)


Legacies of the Reformation
Lecture series at the German Historical Institute, Fall 2017

Organized by David Lazar


The historical significance of Martin Luther’s challenge to the authority and teachings of Rome has long been the subject of intense debate. The modern individual free to act according to the dictates of conscience has been held up as a product of the Reformation, for instance, but so too has the authoritarian state claiming the right to regulate morality and belief. The 500th anniversary of the publication of Luther’s “Ninety-five Theses” offers occasion to revisit the question of the meaning of the Reformation for the present.


All lectures take place on Thursdays and begin at 6:30 pm (refreshments will be served from 6:00 to 6:30 pm). They will be held at the German Historical Institute, 1607 New Hampshire Avenue NW, Washington D.C.
