Reformation Day at Emory 2017

The 30th Reformation Day at Emory was held on Thursday, October 26, celebrating the 30th anniversary of the founding of the Kessler Reformation Collection and marking the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s 95 Theses. This year’s program explored the question, “Did the Reformation fail?” by inviting bishops from the Lutheran and Methodist Churches and an archbishop from the Catholic Church to share their perspectives and thinking with us.
