David Gibson of Religious News Service tells about three major exhibitions opening this month on Luther’s Reformation: at the Morgan Library in New York City; at the Minneapolis Art Institute; and at Emory University in Atlanta. These sound extremely interesting and worth going to.
I was struck by what the Morgan library curator says about Luther’s use of the new information technology of the time (with the assistance of artist and printer Lucas Cranach). See what he says after the jump. But read Gibson’s whole article, which includes the point about how Luther became the model for “speaking truth to power.”
