Legacies of Luther and Calvin: A Study Day with John Morrill

Why was there such a great schism in Western Christendom in the sixteenth century? What made the Catholic Church so unacceptable to men like Martin Luther and Jean Calvin? What made THEIR ideas so unacceptable to the Catholic Church? What, as modern Catholics and modern Protestants, should we make of their ideas? As we approach 500 years since the Reformation began, can we all still learn from them?

Join us when we welcome Rev Professor John Morrill who will share his insights with us at the twenty second Ecumenical Study Day for Essex and East London Christians.

Rev Prof John Morrill FBA is a permanent deacon in the diocese of East Anglia and chair of the Commission for the New Evangelisation there. Until December 2013 he was Professor of British and Irish History at the University of Cambridge and he is a life Fellow of Selwyn College Cambridge.
