History Series: Reformation
December 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm| Main Library (Traverse City)
The Protestant Reformation was a major turning point in Western history, affecting not just religious but also social, political, educational and economic development. Policies made popular then still shape our daily lives. We mark the 500th Anniversary of the onset of the Reformation this year, but the history leading up to and after that is just as fascinating. What was going on in the Medieval Church to prompt Martin Luther’s radical uprising? And why were Protestant leaders like John Calvin, Huldrych Zwingli and Luther so successful in changing the world? Join Rev. Jonathan Williams for this engaging lecture on what is seen as one of the most far-reaching events in world history.
