Reformation Anniversary

 

https://www.luther20...on-anniversary/

 

Introduction:

 

On October 31, 2017, Martin Luther’s recorded posting of the 95 theses on the door of the Wittenberger church castle celebrates its 500th anniversary. While celebrations in earlier centuries were kept national and confessional, the upcoming anniversary of the Revolution ought to be shaped by openness, freedom and ecumenism. In 2017 we aren’t just celebrating 500 years of the Reformation, but we are also reminded of the role the Reformation played in the development of the modern age. Therefore, the impulses that had effects even reaching into our modern age will gain center stage. What started in Wittenberg in the 16th century changed Germany, Europe and the whole world. 

 

That’s why the anniversary in 2017 is going to be celebrated as a global community from Tierra del Fuego to Finland, from South Korea to North America, in contrast to all the Luther and Reformation anniversaries before. International projects, such as traveling exhibitions and choirs, the corporation of charities and pastorates abroad, international congresses and tourism and much more bear witness to the worldwide dimensions of this anniversary.

In England, we'll have to wait at least another 13 years for these Reformation anniversary events as the 1530's were the key period for Reformation here under Henry VIII.

iIn Russia, we haven't wait at all, there was no any event that could serve as historical analogue of western reformation.

 

Other hand, today, 8 October, is another (537th) anniversary of the Great stand on the Ugra river. This was the LAST time when Tatar army led by khan Akhmat came to Russia for tribute and obedience, but faced with Muscovite army of Ivan III and retreated without crossing the river. And, despite all the hardships, never again since that day Russia was dependent from any foreign power. And for Tatars, it was beginning of the end, during next few generations their khanates were conquered by growing Russian tsardom...

 

IMHO exactly this event should be celebrated as our Independence Day. Alas, only very few remember.

PS yes, offtopic. But this event, too, shaped the modern world.

500 Years of The Reformation

 

https://www.swissinf...sm_source=sflow

 

Introduction:

 

This year, the Protestant world celebrates 500 years since the start of the Reformation.

 

On October 31, 1517, German monk Martin Luther nailed his famous 95 theses onto the door of Wittenberg church, denouncing certain practices carried out by the Catholic church at the time, such as the sale of indulgences.

 

The act marked the beginning of the Protestant Reformation in Germany, a movement that quickly spread through much of Europe and, later, North America.

 

If Germany represents the birthplace of the Reformation, Switzerland is also closely involved in its commemoration. Indeed, just a few years after Luther’s actions, reformers in Zurich and Geneva brought a new dimension to the movement, and Protestantism as we know it today has been heavily influenced by what happened in the Alpine nation in the 16th century.

 

According to tradition, the Protestant Reformation started in Wittenberg, Germany, on October 31 1517. Soon enough, however, the movement spread across Europe. Switzerland became one of its most important centres
