Conference | After the Reformation: Christianity, Islam and Beyond

After the Reformation: Christianity, Islam, and Beyond

When Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses on the door of the church in Wittenberg, Germany, on October 31, 1517, it was an event of global historical significance.

Since then, the world has experienced a cascade of religious, cultural, and political reforms and counter-reforms that have enveloped not just European Christianity but virtually all global religious traditions and their billions of adherents.

Join us for a special conference to revisit the Reformation, assess its many legacies for our contemporary world, and hear experts and prominent figures take stock of religious reform—past, present, and future—in Christianity, Islam, and beyond. This event is free and open to the public.
