Description

In the wake of the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s 95 Theses, we take a renewed look at the medieval ethos out of which Luther—and reformers after him—emerged, especially from the setting of medieval universities across Europe. Those universities, in turn, had benefited from the increased contact with Islamic, Jewish, and eastern Greek thought after the Crusades and through attempts to unite the papacy within Roman Catholicism as well as with the Greek east. To explore this context, this is the third of three sessions linking together aspects of medieval reform that are typically separated: spirituality, institutional reform, and humanistic studies in form and content.
