#Refo500atDET: Introduction & Schedule

Five hundred years ago tomorrow, so the story goes, Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the Wittenberg castle church and inadvertently started the Protestant Reformation. Then the Swiss Reformers perfected it.

Well, I’m as much for ecumenism and everything as the next Protestant systematic theologian, but – in my book - that right there is a reason to celebrate.

And so we will! Over the next two weeks, DET’s contributors will treat you, gentle readers, to a series of posts celebrating the lives and achievements of important figures from the Reformation. We’ll be bringing all the best Reformation-historical goodness to you right through your favorite digital screen.

I’m excited about our line-up. It’s impossible to cover all the bases with events like these, but I think we’ve got a good combination that includes the stuff that long-time DET readers would expect, some stuff that they wouldn’t, and some stuff that I think its vitally important to hear and think about more often.

The schedule for this #Refo500atDET event is posted below. I’ll link things in as they’re published, and I hope you’ll join in the fun!


Also, I'm planning to run a set of "evening editions" on social media with this series that will pull from DET's ample archive. Here's an index to those posts as well:
