Event Description

Highlighting manuscripts and early printed books from the Special Collections Library, the exhibit commemorates the 500th anniversary of a pivotal transformation in world history. In 1517, Martin Luther, a professor of theology and a monk, published his scathing critique of indulgences, a church practice that allowed Christians to buy off time from suffering for one’s sins in the afterlife.
