St. James’ Sunday Bible Study Lectures
May 5, 2019 @ 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm
Luther, Radicals, and Roman Catholics
Sunday May 5 2019 12:15pm. to 1:30pm.
In this lecture, we move from the late Middle Ages into the 16th century and the world of the Reformation. This period includes a fascinating group of characters: Martin Luther, a renegade monk; Thomas Müntzer, the architect of a failed political revolution; and Melchior Hoffmann, an apocalyptic prophet who thought that his own career had been foretold in Revelation. To round out this cast, we’ll also meet some Catholic thinkers who responded to the apocalyptic rhetoric of the time by redefining the way people saw the book of Revelation itself.
