Martin Luther: Protest in Print

Exhibition Website

Sep 19 2017 - Dec 17 2017

This selection of sixteenth-century prints and books commemorates the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther's Disputation on the Power of Indulgencesalso known as the 95 Theses. In voicing increasing complaint against the corruption of the Church, Martin Luther (1483-1546) became a leading provocateur of its reform. 

Protest in Print explores the history and popular thought that supported these grievances, the impact of the print medium on the circulation of protest and reform materials, and the artistic response to reform ideologies.
