The Early Modern Studies Program has launched a newsletter.
Under the watchful gaze of Martin Luther himself, the inaugural issue of The Early Modern Studies Program Newsletter celebrates the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.
“The beginning of the greatest schism in modern Christianity and the source of countless religious wars within Europe (or a long-overdue purging of some thousand years of corruption by the Roman Catholic Church, depending on how you look at it) is surely worthy of irreverent commemoration,” says EMSP Director Dr. Simon Kow. “Well, that’s the early modern period for you: a world turned upside-down.”
You’ll find Lutheran advice, early modern memes, news and events, and a profile of EMSP alumna Evany Rosen (BAH ’10), comedienne extraordinaire, and keynote lecturer at the January 2018 Conference of the Early Modern.
“Sincere thanks must go to third-year EMSP Graham O’Brien for his exceptional stewardship of the newsletter, as well as to the executive of the Early Modern Studies Society and the teaching staff of the EMSP for their excellent contributions,” says Simon.
