Shifting Paradigms: Martin Luther lecture series now online

A series of eight audio lectures exploring Martin Luther’s revolutionary and lasting impact on the world is now available online.

The series, Shifting Paradigms: Martin Luther’s Enduring Global Impact, was delivered by Martin Luther University College scholars during a Third Age Learning Kitchener Waterloo program in early 2020.

The impact of the Reformation ignited by Martin Luther spanned the globe and endures to this day. The effects of the 16th-century German Reformation range from uplifting to devastating — from Luther’s passionate fight for freedom of conscience and the promotion of education and literacy for all, to his anti-Semitic writing that fuelled the Holocaust during the Second World War.

The lectures were presented at RIM Park, in Waterloo, from Jan. 9 – Feb. 27, 2020.

The lectures available on the school’s YouTube channel are audio only, but presentation slides are available listeners wish to follow along.
