Ekaterina Lomperis of the Oregon State University School of History, Philosophy and Religion will speak. The Protestant Reformation was not only about reforming the church’s doctrine and structures, but also about reshaping Christian approaches to practices and phenomena of everyday life. And no other major Christian thinker was more interested in spiritual understandings of seemingly mundane dimensions of daily life than Martin Luther. This lecture will explore how, according to Luther, one should eat, heal and marry, as a Christian.
