"Reformation Reflection" Series Continues With Lecture On Monday, November 13

Monday, November 13, 2017 - 10:45am

Limestone College Physics Professor Dr. Scott Berry will present a lecture on Monday, Nov. 13, at 7:30 p.m. as part of Limestone’s “Reformation Reflections” series.

Berry’s talk is entitled “Because Calvin & Galileo Said So.” It will take place in the Carroll Hall of Fine Arts, Room 105. Admission is free and the public is invited to attend.

The lecture will be about the relationship between Calvin’s expansion of biblical interpretation and Galileo’s experimental results – and subsequent challenge to the then-accepted notions about the place of the Earth and humanity in the universe. 

Limestone College recently announced an extensive program of celebrations in the coming months to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the beginning of the Protestant Reformation.

It has been 500 years since Martin Luther set the Reformation in motion by nailing his 95 Theses to the door of the Wittenberg Church in Germany on October 31, 1517.

As part of its series “Reformation Reflections: The First 500 Years,” Limestone will mark the anniversary with a sequence of special events and presentations during the current academic year that will commemorate the rise of the Protestant church.
