Luther’s Reformation at 500
On the 500th anniversary of the beginning of the Protestant Reformation, this UWA Institute of Advanced Studies – Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies Lecture Series reconsidered the legacy of Martin Luther, who in 1517 published Ninety-Five Theses criticising the Church’s sale of indulgences. From diverse historical perspectives, UWA researchers tackled key issues regarding Luther’s life, his thought, and his significance for the momentous changes that Europe underwent during his lifetime.
