Live screening of an exclusive lecture for Members.

31 October 2017 marks the 500th anniversary of Reformation Day, when Martin Luther was said to have nailed his 95 Theses to the door of All Saints' Church in Wittenberg, thus sparking the Reformation.

On the eve of this important date, Diarmaid MacCulloch, Professor of the History of the Church at Oxford, considers the significance of an event which from its first spark in northern Germany half a millennium ago altered the course of world history, and whose effects are still being felt. He explores why the Reformation proved so destructive yet so creative, what Reformers from Martin Luther onwards wanted, what they in fact got, and what Reformation in Christianity might mean today.

Diarmaid MacCulloch is also writer and presenter of the BBC's major documentary A History of Christianity and author of Reformation: Europe’s House Divided 1490–1700 and All Things Made New: Writings on the Reformation.

Includes a complimentary drink.

Please note that this is a live relay screening of the lecture that will be taking place in the BP Lecture Theatre.
