Summer Lectures 2017

This summer, as part of our observation of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, St. Philip’s will be hosting a lecture series on the theme “The Aftermath of the Reformation: Women, Minorities, Refugees, and the Demand for Social Justice.” This series, held in conjunction with The University of Arizona’s Division for Late Medieval and Reformation Studies, will feature four thought-provoking lectures held in the Music Center at 10:15am on each of the four Sundays of August.

Dr. Susan C. Karant-Nunn, Regents’ Professor of History and Dr. Ute Lotz-Heumann, Heiko A. Oberman Professor of Late Medieval and Reformation History, will contextualize and comment on each of the lectures. Please join us!
