Free Viewing of the 2003 Luther Movie

Presented by ELCA of Middle Tennessee at Belmont University, Johnson Center, Nashville TN

Jan 29 2017
Free Viewing of the 2003 Luther Movie

Sunday, January 29 showing of the movie Luther (starring Joseph Fiennes) in the Johnson Center of Belmont University.

The ELCA Lutherans of Middle Tennessee begin commemorating the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation on Sunday, January 29 with a showing of the movie Luther (starring Joseph Fiennes) in the Johnson Center of Belmont University.  Beginning at 2:00 p.m.  The event will include a discussion with Dr. Paul Lim, Associate Professor of the History of Christianity at Vanderbilt University.

When Martin Luther posted his “Ninety-five Theses” on the church door in Wittenberg, Germany in 1517, no one expected the breadth of evangelical reforms in Christian teaching and practice that followed.  “Luther” is a 2003 biopic about the life of Martin Luther (1483–1546) starring Joseph Fiennes. It was an independent film, partially funded by Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, and covers Luther’s life from his becoming a monk in 1505 to the Diet of Augsburg in 1530.

Professor Paul C.H. Lim will introduce the film and answer questions following the movie as we explore the life of Martin Luther and the beginning of the Reformation.  Dr. Lim is an award-winning historian of Reformation- and post-Reformation Europe.  His latest book, Mystery Unveiled: The Crisis of the Trinity in Early Modern England (Oxford, 2012), won the 2013 Roland H. Bainton Prize as the best book in history/theology by the Sixteenth Century Society and Conference.
