Reformation Before the Reformers

The Reformation did not begin, like Minerva jumping from the head of Luther, on October 31, 1517. This workshop will examine some of the vital currents of pre-reform that paved the way for the emergence of a distinctive Protestant articulation of the gospel in the 16th century. We will look at Wycliffe, Hus, Savonarola, and Erasmus, among others.
