The Church celebrates Reformation Sunday on the last Sunday of October, commemorating a significant event in the history of the Reformed tradition. It was on October 31, 1517, that Martin Luther posted his 95 theses on the door of the church in Wittenberg.
The online exhibit, Foundations of the Faith, draws on images and objects from PHS's rich collections in reformation history. It includes materials relating to such early humanists as Bernard of Clairvaux and Erasmus; the early reformers Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli and Philipp Melanchthon; and the founders of the Presbyterian tradition, John Calvin, Theodore Beza, and John Knox.
