The Reformation in Ten Books

Thursday 30 March, 2 pm

Five hundred years ago Martin Luther’s Ninety-Five Theses started a revolution that shook Europe. In this talk Helen Vincent, Rare Books, Maps and Music Collections Manager, selects ten items from the Library’s Rare Book Collections that bring the Reformation to life and show how the printed word became the weapon of choice for reformers, counter-reformers, intellectuals, politicians, poets and pamphleteers.

This event is part of the Library's programme for Rare Books Edinburgh, a new festival of events celebrating rare, collectable and important books and book history, alongside a book fair featuring some of the UK's top rare books dealers.

In this talk Helen Vincent, Rare Books Manager, selects ten items from the Library’s Collections that bring the Reformation to life.
