Quest Course, Concordia Lutheran Seminary, October 2017 Rev. John A. Maxfield, PhD
Martin Luther’s Road to Reformation, 1483-1521 What better way to celebrate the “Reformation 500” anniversary than to learn about the man who started it all? In this course we will examine Martin Luther’s life and the development of his theology from his birth in 1483 to the controversy that developed thirty-five years later after his posting of the Ninety-Five Theses on Indulgences on October 31, 1517 and that initiated the Reformation.
Part I: Wed. Oct. 4: Church Life and Spirituality in Germany on the Eve of the Reformation, Luther’s Family, Upbringing, and Education
