Luther 2017 – 500 Years of Reformation
Luther posted his Ninety-Five Theses against the misuse of indulgences on October 31, 1517. Luther famously nailed the theses to the door of Wittenberg’s ‘Castle Church’; this event is considered the beginning of the Reformation. A global movement grew out of his action: it influenced not only Germany in a lasting way, but also the rest of Europe and America, and made its mark around the entire world. The Reformation’s impact was not limited to religion and theology; it also encompassed music and art, the economy and the social order, language and law. Almost no aspect of our lives has remained unaffected by the Reformation.
The 500th Anniversary of the posting of the Ninety-Five Theses will occur on October 31, 2017. Luther himself already considered the beginning of the Reformation a cause for celebration. Together with friends, he commemorated the ‘destruction of the indulgences ten years ago’ on November 1, 1527.
