New Video Resource on the Reformation

New Video Resource on the Reformation

It has been 500 years since a lone monk’s actions ignited a firestorm that changed the religious, social, and political landscape of the West. Concordia Seminary has produced a new video resource that explores how the Reformation has shaped the world around us, perhaps more than we realize.

Hosted by St. Louis anchor, Sandy Miller, the video series features renowned scholars in the history of religion, culture, and theology to provide insights into the ways in which the Reformation influenced the ideas, and institutions that continue to flourish to this day.

The video resource is thematically organized, offering 5-10 minute “mini-documentaries” within the broad categories of Religion, Politics, and Society. All are free to use as personal or educational resources: reformation500.csl.edu.
