On Tuesday, Oct. 24, Brad Gregory, the Dorothy G. Griffin Professor of early modern European history at the University of Notre Dame, will visit DePaul to discuss seminal figure Martin Luther and the Protestant Reformation. The event is free and open to the public.

For five centuries, Luther has been lionized as an outspoken and fearless icon of change who ended the Middle Ages and heralded the beginning of the modern world. In his talk, Gregory, will recast this long-accepted portrait. Luther did not intend to start a revolution that would divide the Catholic Church and forever change Western civilization. Yet his actions would profoundly shape our world in ways he could never have imagined.

Discounted parking available in the Sheffield Parking Garage located at 2331 N. Sheffield or Clifton Parking Deck located at 2330 N. Clifton. Questions about the event may be directed to Brenda Washington.
