On October 31, 1517, a Catholic monk posted 95 theses at the door of the Wittenberg Castle Church in Germany and began a conversation that changed the course of history. Join us at the Newseum’s Religious Freedom Center for lunch and an engaging dialogue as scholars and leaders from different Protestant communions share perspectives on the Reformation and its lasting impact on individual freedom of thought and conscience.
Presentations and panel discussions will explore the ongoing legacy of the Reformation and the contribution of Protestant Christian thought—from the grand “American experiment” in freedom of religious conscience, to the evolution of today’s international human rights discourse, to the challenges of peacemaking in an increasingly polarized geopolitical and religious landscape.
Sponsored by the Seventh-day Adventist Church and the Religious Freedom Center of the Newseum Institute. This is a free event, but registration is required. Lunch will be served. Space is limited so reserve your place today.
