2017 marked the 500th anniversary of the beginning of the Protestant Reformation in Europe, with the promulgation of Martin Luther’s 95 theses. Following on from the success of our Reformation events last year, The National Archives presents a unique opportunity to hear some of the UK’s foremost Reformation scholars reflecting on the records of the Reformation, the modern-day relevance of the Reformation and the impact of the 2017 anniversary. The event will take place on Friday 13th April between 18:00 and 20:00. There will be a display of key Reformation documents from the holdings of The National Archives and a wine reception between 18:00 and 19:00. The panel discussion will begin at 19:00. Tickets are £15 and include a glass of wine. 

The panellists will be: 

Professor Diarmaid MacCulloch, author of Reformation: Europe's House Divided 1490–1700. Professor MacCulloch specialises in Church history and the history of Christianity. Since 1997 he has been Professor of the History of the Church at the University of Oxford. 

Professor Alexandra Walsham, author of Catholic Reformation in Protestant Britain. Professor Walsham specialises in early modern Britain and the impact of the Protestant and Catholic Reformations. She has been Professor of Modern History at the University of Cambridge since 2010. 

Doctor Jonathan Willis, author of The Reformation of the Decalogue: Religious Identity and the Ten Commandments in England, c. 1485-1625.
