Description

Liberated by God’s Grace: 1517-2017 - 500 Years of Reformation


The Reformation movement which shook Europe and laid foundations for modern society began in 1517 – 500 years ago this autumn, when Martin Luther wrote his 95 Theses. This key moment in history will be marked on Tuesday, 31st October by Westminster Abbey in partnership with the Council of Lutheran Churches, with a special service in the Abbey and a symposium: ‘Liberated by God’s Grace’ in St Margaret’s Church. All are welcome to both events.

The symposium will bring together leading academics to analyse the ongoing impact of the Reformation. What has been its effect on subsequent generations, not only for our churches but also for our wider self-understanding and social order?
