500th Anniversary of the Reformation
Reformation changed the World. In 2017 it will be 500
years that the Reformation started with Martin Luther
nailing 95 thesis to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg,
Germany. The evangelical church in Germany celebrates this
anniversary with the "Luther-Decade".
before Luther the Prague Professor Jan Hus was sentenced
to death by the Diet of Constance. And later, in the 16th
century, besides the Lutheran reformation more and more movements
started in all over Europe. Huldrych Zwingli started
his reformatory sermons in 1518 in Zurich and layed the ground
for the Swiss reformation. John Calvin formed it after
1536 in Geneve to an independent movement. In 1561 Guido de
Brès threw a copy of the dutch confession
over the wall of Tournai castle. At the same time Lutheran
reformation was spread out to the Scandinavian and Baltic
states as well as to Transsylvania.
