Event description

Description

This year marks the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther pinning his 95 'Theses' - or reform proposals - to the door of his local university church in Wittenberg. Most scholars now agree that the details of this eye-catching gesture are more legend than hammer and nails, but what is true is that the Augustinian Friar and theologian issued a challenge to the Church which led to religious and political upheaval across Europe and divided mainstream Christianity ever after.

In this new popular biography, journalist Peter Stanford looks at Martin Luther from within his Catholic context, examining his actual aims, as well as his enduring legacy - and where he might fit within the church today.
