In 1521, Martin Luther informed the Holy Roman Emperor that he could not recant what he had published because, declaring, “my conscience is captive to the Word of God.” Within less than ten years a host of other earnest seekers had followed Luther’s reliance on Scripture, and found refreshing new life in Christ—but also produced unprecedented division in biblical interpretation. This lecture tries to specify the great gain, but also the considerable problems, that arose from the Protestant reliance on the Bible as chief authority for individuals and the church.

This lecture is part of our 2017 Summer Evening Public Lecture series. 

Dr. Noll is a leading church historian. He recently retired as the Francis A. McAnaney Professor of History at the University of Notre Dame, having previously served as Professor of History and Theological Studies at Wheaton College. He has taught courses on American religious history, world Christianity, Reformation theology, Puritanism, historiography, nineteenth-century British evangelicalism, and American intellectual history.

Dr. Noll will be teaching the class "The Reformation: Then & Now, from Above & Below" with Dr. Mary Noll Venables from July 17–28, 2017 as part of our 2017 Summer Programs. Learn more at rgnt.net/summer.
