Reformation Day at Emory 2016

The twenty-ninth annual Reformation Day at Emory focused on Law and Grace: Martin Luther, Lucas Cranach, and the Promise of Salvation. After docent-led tours of the exhibit "Law and Grace: Martin Luther, Lucas Cranach, and the Promise of Salvation," Dr. M. Patrick Graham presented highlights from the year’s acquisitions to the Richard C. Kessler Reformation Collection. We then heard the preaching of Professor Anthony Briggman and enjoyed a luncheon musical program with the Candler Singers, directed by Dr. David Daniel.

In the afternoon, we listened to three lectures on Cranach's work and the Protestant Reformation:

Videos from the sermon and the three lectures are available below. You can also find the schedule of events from the day at the bottom of the page.
