The Church of the Advent’s Theology on Tap returns Tuesday, December 12 with Prof. Carlos M. N. Eire
Historian and memoirist Carlos M. N. Eire continues the 2017 season of Theology on Tap with reflections on the English Reformation.
Around the world people are commemorating the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s contributions to the continental Reformation.
Prof. Eire’s scholarship shows however that the Reformation was not one historical event but a series of confluences intersecting across Europe and across decades of historic transformation.
In honor of the Church of the Advent’s Anglican heritage, he will speak to us about the history of the English Reformation.
Prof. Eire is the T. Lawrason Riggs Professor of History & Religious Studies at Yale University and the author of numerous books, including the magisterial Reformations: The Early Modern World, which won the R.R.Hawkins Prize for Best Book of the Year from the American Publishers Association, as well as the award for Best Book in the Humanities. He is also the author of the best-selling memoir Waiting for Snow in Havana: Confessions of a Cuban Boy, which won the National Book Award for Non-Fiction.
