500 years after the Reformation: Scholars gather at DePaul University for World Catholicism Week
CHICAGO — In 1517, Martin Luther nailed a proclamation to a church door in Wittenberg, Germany and launched the Protestant Reformation. Five hundred years later, speakers from India, Nigeria, Brazil, Chile and Sri Lanka will gather at DePaul University to address the lingering repercussions of the Reformation on Christianity, particularly in the global South.
“Christians all over the world are using this anniversary to take stock of where we have come over the last five centuries,” said William Cavanaugh, professor of Catholic Studies and director of the Center for World Catholicism and Intercultural Theology at DePaul.
