It is just over five hundred years since Martin Luther’s 95 theses began the Reformation, however his work is seldom studied or read. Our Theological Reading Group is seeking to remedy this by meeting four times to concentrate on three of his best known works:
- To the Christian Nobility of the German Nation,
- On the Babylonian Captivity of the Church, and
- On the Freedom of a Christian.
At the first meeting the Rev’d Theresa Jones will be talking about her doctoral thesis which will include an introduction to Luther, and at the second and third meetings we will look at the texts.
To learn more, a highly readable account of Luther’s life is contained in “Martin Luther: Catholic Dissident” by Peter Stanford published last year and available in hardback, paperback and kindle.
