500 years: The Reformation & its Resonations Conference. 

The Reformation was a seismic shift that challenged the establishment, set off a chain of events and profoundly altered the course of history.

This symposium seeks to investigate the events of 1517; their causes; their immediate aftermath in local and national context; reactions to them within the Catholic world; and their long-term consequences, notably through the emergence of various Protestant denominations during the 16th and 17th centuries.  In addition, we also wish to explore how these events still resonate today.

With presentations and contributions from scholars from across the UK and from Germany and Nigeria. 

Friday September 15th
from 9.00am - 5.00pm
In the Panacea Museum Gardens, 9 Newnham Road, Bedford.

The day is inspired by the wonderful early stain glass windows that were sadly destroyed by Henry VIII during the English Reformation.
