No need to RSVP. This event is free and open to the public. A light lunch will be served.

Please see symposium description below.

What is the Reformation and why is it significant? When did it actually begin and end? Dr. Brandon Alakas, Dr. Geoff Dipple and Rev. Craig Wentland will address these questions, and analyse the Reformation from different vantage points. Dr. Alakas will discuss visions of religious and social reformation during the reign of Henry VIII by monastic authors. Dr. Dipple will discuss how the message of Luther and other Reformers was received by “the people.” Rev. Wentland will address Luther’s theology of creation, and whether it can be used as a basis for a contemporary ecological ethic.
