Church, Faith, and Individual Belief in the Late Middle Ages and Reformation

October 1, 2017 @ 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Later this month Lutherans and Protestants worldwide will celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.  This calls for celebration!  Today we are privileged to host Prof. Samuel Claussen, Assistant Professor of History from California Lutheran University, to speak to us about the historical setting of Luther’s Germany.

Dr. Claussen is a medieval European historian.  His research deals with violence, religion, and chivalry in medieval Castile and its place in the wider Mediterranean and western European worlds.  Dr. Claussen works to understand the ideas of knights and men-at-arms in the medieval world through an examination of traditional historical sources such as chronicles, treatises, and the records of central government, but also through literary and imaginative sources such as frontier ballads, poetry, and chivalric romance.
