"Beyond Oberman": Luther and the Middle Ages

The year 2017 will mark the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. Many events have been organized all over the world to celebrate this milestone. For the most part, these celebrations focus on Martin Luther’s innovations, particularly his contributions to worldwide Protestantism and the period known as “modernity.” Yet another perspective is required, namely the recognition that Martin Luther was a reformer of medieval Catholicism. Luther’s spirituality, theology, and ideas were steeped in late medieval thought.

This conference is made possible thanks to the support of the Dean’s Office of the Judd A. and Marjorie Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences of Northwestern University, and the Departments of Religious Studies and German. The conference is also co-sponsored by the Alumnae of Northwestern University, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), and the Kaplan Institute for the Humanities at Northwestern University.
