The Reformation Era and the Making of Modernity
Lecture by eminent historian Professor Brad S. Gregory, University of Notre Dame
Kathryn Mohrmann Theatre, Armstrong Hall, 7:00 PM – Thursday, November 9
Five hundred years ago this fall, the Reformation of western Christianity broke out in Germany, in the next decades transforming religion, culture, and society across Europe. Brad S. Gregory of the University of Notre Dame is among the most important of contemporary voices addressing the meaning of the origins of Protestantism and the contemporaneous reform of the Catholic Church for the twenty-first century. His CC lecture will resume the theme of his widely acclaimed 2015 book, The Unintended Reformation: How a Religious Reformation Secularized Society. Gregory, a professor at Notre Dame and a warm, dynamic speaker, will welcome questions from the Colorado Springs and college communities. Gregory’s new book about Martin Luther, Rebel in the Ranks, will be available for purchase outside the talk.
This event is sponsored by the Paul Sheffer Memorial Fund for Roman Catholic Studies
More information about Gregory, his compelling work, and his life outside scholarship is available at ndias.nd.edu/about/contact-us/brad-gregory/
