Luther's Legacy - a Reformation lecture

Reformation music

1st October at 11.45am, followed by a bring & share lunch and opportunity for further discussion.

On the occasion of the 500th anniversary of Luther’s publication of the 95 theses, this talk explores the legacy of the German Reformation. A particular focus will be on congregational singing and how the hymns shaped Protestant identity in Germany and Britain to the present day. We will look at (and sing) examples from the first Protestant hymnbook printed in 1524 in Erfurt to the Methodist hymnbook ‘Hymns and Psalms’.

Henrike Lähnemann is Professor of Medieval German Language and Literature and coordinates the ‘Reformation 2017’ project in Oxford. She is a member of St Columba’s URC and a keen singer.
