Will the Real Martin Luther Please Stand Up?

September 28, 2017 at 7:00 PM / St. John 23rd Parish Auditorium

University of Tennessee

This year marks the 500th Year Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation (1517-2017). Why is it important to talk about Luther? Which Luther are we going to talk about? What lenses do we use to interpret history? Join us as two UT history professors, Monica Black and Robert Bast, discuss with guest scholar, Thomas Albert Howard. There will also be a luncheon for young academics, “On Loving Academia in Difficult Times”, on Friday, September 29, at 12:15PM in the Tyson House Lutheran/Episcopal Campus Ministry. Call 865-558-5773 for reservations ($3 donation).
