500th Anniversary of Luther’s 95 Theses

This October 31 will mark the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s 95 Theses. Whether or not they were actually nailed to the door in Wittenberg, and whether or not you agree with what Luther was attempting, there is no denying the incredible events which that moment marks in the world. I highly recommend chapter 2 of Hans Hillerbrand’s book The Division of Christendom for a look into the few years surrounding this event.

Ephemera

  1. Lecture exploring the use of proper names in the Gospels as more evidence they are genuine first-hand accounts (Dr. Peter Williams, Principal, Tyndale House, Cambridge).
  2. The Workshop of Phidias. Phidias was the sculpter of the idol of Zeus at Olympus – one of the seven wonders of the world in its time.
  3. Download Roland TR-707 sound samples.
  4. The universe should not exist according to physicists at CERN, who have made the most precise measurement ever of antiprotons.

There is sufficient clearness to enlighten the elect, and sufficient obscurity to humble them. There is sufficient obscurity to blind the reprobate, and sufficient clearness to condemn them and make them inexcusable. – Pascal, Pensees
