Summary: He was only a humble monk and Bible professor, yet he sparked a religious rebellion that changed history. This 24-lecture course explores Martin Luther's theology and the Reformation after he posted his famous 95 theses on the church door in Wittenberg, Germany in 1517. How did this late-medieval man launch the Protestant Reformation and help create the modern world? What made his theology so explosive in 16th-century Europe? Was he hero or heretic, rebel or tormented soul? Why does his life continue to be a subject of vigorous religious and historical debate? Why is so much of Luther's thinking based on the writings of one man: St. Augustine? What strengths did Catholicism and Protestantism lose by their separation? Why is the Bible-and certainty about what it means-so important to Luther and Protestantism, and how does that relate to Christian fundamentalism? This course by Professor Phillip Cary of Eastern University will help you reach your own conclusions as you explore, in depth, Luther's subtle, challenging and sometimes disturbing theology.
