An opportunity to learn about the Reformation - for free
While scholars concur that there have been several reformations throughout church history, there is only one that people tend to think of when they refer to “the Reformation,” and that is the Protestant Reformation. It began in 1517 when a German monk and theologian named Martin Luther circulated Ninety-Five Theses, which objected to certain practices by the Roman Catholic Church. Starting in September, Wycliffe College at the University of Toronto plans to mark the 500th anniversary of that historic occurrence, by hosting a series of special events designed to communicate the background, context, key personalities, and ideas of the Protestant Reformation, while exploring its legacy for the church today. One of these events is: Of Passion, Politics, Power and Protest: Rediscovering the Reformation, a free, 12-week, non-credit, online course that will provide an overview of the Reformation. The course includes videos, notes, audio slides, as well as optional quizzes, discussion forums, and assignments. The course will run from September 25 to December 15. Registration opens September 18, 2017.
