The Center was honored to welcome John Witte Jr. back to CTI on Thursday, October 19th to give a public lecture to mark the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Prof. Witte considered how the Lutheran Reformation transformed not only theology and the church but also law and the state. The lecture is now available on the CTI Fresh Thinking Podcast.
