Reformation 500 at Luther College in 2017

October 31, 2017 marked the 500th anniversary of an important event in Lutheran history. It was on October 31, 1517 that Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of the church at Wittenberg, Germany, and made the Protestant Reformation stick. Lutherans united with other Christians to commemorate the Reformation, and Luther College was proud to do the same.

Luther College hosted, organized, and promoted numerous events over the course of 2017 to celebrate its Lutheran history and heritage, remember its namesake Dr. Martin Luther, and enrich the education of its students at both the High School and University campus. Here are some of the events Luther College supported and organized in 2017 to highlight for the Saskatchewan community the influence of the Reformation on today’s world:


The "Table Talk" Speaker Series ran once weekly throughout February and March. Each talk featured a different faculty member or friend of Luther College who addressed a topic related to the Reformation for 20 minutes. Conversation (table talk!) and locally produced craft beer followed. For a brief description or to view a recording of each talk, please visit our Table Talk Speaker Series page.
