Description

Reformation Day at Emory: Thursday, October 27 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“Law and Grace: Martin Luther, Lucas Cranach and the Promise of Salvation” centers on Lucas Cranach’s 1536 painting "Law and Grace," which illustrates the essence of Luther’s reform: the concept of salvation through God’s grace alone. Candler School of Theology’s Pitts Theology Library was selected as one of just three U.S. sites to exhibit items related to Martin Luther in celebration of the upcoming 500th anniversary of the Reformation in 2017. In addition to "Law and Grace," other German artifacts in the exhibit include a spear that belonged to the palace guard of Ferdinand, emperor of the Holy Roman Empire from 1558 to 1564, and a wall fountain from the Luther House in Wittenberg, discovered during archeological excavations.

This event takes place at:
Candler School of Theology’s Pitts Theology Library
