In October 1517 Martin Luther famously nailed his 95 theses to the door of All Saints Church in Wittenberg, Germany.

 

Historians have questioned whether this dramatic event occurred in quite this way, but however they were made, Luther's protestations against what he regarded as the corrupting influences of the Roman Catholicism of the day (especially the trade in indulgences) were the sparks that fired up the Protestant Reformation.

 

Spreading throughout much of Europe, it changed the face of religious belief and practice for millions of Christians in ways that have proved to be both beneficial and divisive.

 

These talks, which were originally held at St. Peter’s Methodist Church in Canterbury between September and October 2017, focused on five central themes of the Reformation that were the subject of intense and passionate debate.
