500 Years Later: How Martin Luther's Thoughts Shaped Modern European Society

Wednesday, November 1 at 4:00 p.m.
Franklin Hall 110

portrait of Luther

On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther published 95 Theses for debate, challenging the authority and structure of the Roman Catholic Church. Within five years, the monolithic Medieval Church had crumbled. But Luther's ideas had a far greater impact beyond changing the religious life of Europe.

In this lecture, Dr. David Hockenbery, former Dean of Arts and Sciences at Columbus State, discusses how Luther's thoughts laid the foundations for modern society from public education to science, from equality for men and women to democracy, and from Gregorian chant to Johann Sebastian Bach.
