REFORMATION 500

"In short, I will preach it, teach it, write it, but I will constrain no one by force, for faith must come freely without compulsion. Take myself as an example. I opposed indulgences and all the papists, but never with force. I simply taught, preached and wrote God's Word; otherwise I did nothing. And while I slept, or drank Wittenberg beer with my friends Phillipp and Amsdorf, the Word...did everything." Martin Luther (1483- 1546)


REFORMATION 500

"One man, Martin Luther, took a stand that literally shredded the fabric of Europe. It changed theology, it changed politics, it changed society and it changed political boundaries. It gave us a revolution in education, in literacy. There are many, many manifestation of the Reformation." Tom Rassier, curator, "Martin Luther: Art and the Reformation"


REFORMATION 500

"The Reformation is a much broader event than that singular day. To be sure, the Reformation began on that day. The Reformation, however, spanned two centuries and encompassed a cast of characters from a variety of nations. Luther may very well be at the center of the Reformation, but he does not stand alone." Stephen J. Nichols, author, The Reformation


REFORMATION 500

"The recently published Atlas of World Christianity enumerates about 500,000,000 adherents to churches and denominations that trace their descent directly or indirectly from 16th-century Protestant beginnings and several hundred millions more in 'independent' churches with Protestant originals or strongly Protestant characteristics." Mark Noll, professor
