THE MAN • THE MESSAGE • THE MACHINERY

Curated by Rev. Dr. Joshua Hollmann and Dr. Charles T. Little

EXHIBITION RUNS THROUGH NOVEMBER 11, 2017

In 1517 a relatively unknown monk and professor residing in a small town in Germany started a social and religious movement that forever changed Europe and the rest of the world.

Martin Luther called for reforms in the Western Church by posting his Ninety-Five Theses on the doors of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany. Thanks to the recently created printing press, pamphlets and broadsheets reproducing Luther’s ideas for reform quickly spread throughout Germany and Europe.  In today’s parlance, his message went viral.

This exhibition explores who Luther was, what he stood for and how innovations in printing enabled his ideas for reform to spread rapidly in the 1500s.
