1517 and all that… The Relevance of the Reformation Today

Sat, 28 October 2017

The Protestant Reformation, in its noble aim of radically purifying Christian belief and practice, convulsed Europe and led to massive fragmentation and conflict. The next centuries saw the resulting divisions spread throughout much of the World, with different western Christian traditions developing quite different heritage and cultures. The last 100 years has seen a re-examination of the Reformation goals and convergence towards greater Christian unity. What has been the Reformation impact on the world of today - religious and secular? Four speakers from a range of western Christian traditions will give their views, followed by a panel discussion.


Bishop Martin Lind (Bishop of the Lutheran Church in Great Britain)

The Rev Canon Dr Charlotte Methuen (Anglican Priest, University of Glasgow)
