A Look at the Reformation – Marcus Grodi

January 11, 2017 One Comment

In this 2006 Deep in History lecture, Marcus Grodi looks at how for so many of us in the United States, our understanding of the Reformation is colored by the fact that our nation started out as a British colony, and our shared narrative leads many of us to believe that Martin Luther and Renaissance thinkers freed humanity from a dark, ignorant, and uncivilized  oppression by the Catholic Church.  Marcus invites us to reexamine that view of history, to look at the data and the lives of Christians who lived during those centuries, and to get a more accurate picture of the role of the Catholic Church in society leading up to the 16th century.

  • Wow, what a wonderful talk, drenched with the Holy Spirit, and one that concludes with the universal call to personal holiness!
