In this 500th anniversary year of Luther’s promulgation of his 95 theses, we will take a look at the roots of the Anglican Church in the Protestant Reformation. Our Anglican ancestors followed a different path from that of Luther and the continental and Scottish Protestants. It proved a difficult and dangerous path as three successive monarchs attempted to mold the English church to their beliefs. In the end, they did find middle ground between Catholicism and Protestantism. Dr. Paul Chase will be using the 39 Articles of Religion (Historical Documents in the BCP, beginning on page 867) as the basis for information and discussion.
This discussion will begin at 10:00 a.m. in the Great Room, followed by Holy Eucharist at 10:30.
