The Reformation: From the Word to the World at the Huntington Library in San Marino

On the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s posting the 95 theses on the door of a Wittenberg Church, The Huntington Library in San Marino will present an exhibition of about 50 rare manuscripts, books, and prints made between the 1400s and 1648 (the end of the Thirty Years’ War) – part of a flurry of written arguments and ideas put forward by scholars, clerics, statesmen, and lay believers to fuel a movement called the Reformation. These documents address the power of the written word and the relationship between it and radical change within a specific historical moment and geographical region. The exhibition will also pose the question: What is so important to you that you would nail a statement about it in a public place for all to see?

This special exhibition will run from October 28, 2017 to February 26, 2018 in the Library’s West Hall. Consider taking a group from your congregation to enjoy both the exhibition and the Huntington’s art and gardens! Call (626) 405-2240 for special discounted rates for groups of 15 or more.

The Huntington Library is located at 1151 Oxford Road in San Marino, and open from Wednesday through Monday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 PM
