A Radical Reformer Speaks Out on . . .
Upcoming Reformation 500 Lectures
Commemorating the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation, a plan to offer a series of Reformation lectures under the theme “The Lutheran Reformation was an Educational Movement” during the 2017-18 school year is underway. A list of speakers have been developed for the three topics:
Luther’s Christmas Pageant
By Martin Luther
Adapted by Professor Emeritus Arnold Koelpin
This presentation by Prof. Em. Arnold Koelpin will provide an overview of the Martin Luther: Art and the Reformation exhibit at the Minneapolis Institute of Art. It also aims to assist in understanding the world of Martin Luther, his boyhood and training, his struggle as a monk with church reform, and his main contributions to our world from lecture-stand to the pulpit (both reassembled in the exhibit for our real-life insight into the Reformation).

Statues and Historical Sign
Two statues of Martin Luther can be found on the MLC campus.
Click on the images below to learn more about them.
A historical sign about Luther is being produced thanks to a generous gift from the DMLC Class of 1966. It will educate campus family members and visitors about why we honor this man, focusing on his commitment to doctrinal purity, Christian education for the youth, and music that supports those efforts.
MORE INFORMATION COMING SOON!
Begun as a class project in 1970, this model of the city of Wittenberg, “Cradle of the Reformation,” was constructed primarily by Mr. Theodore Pelzl with the assistance of students in Professor Emeritus Arnold Koelpin’s course, Modern Church History & The Reformation, from 1970 to 1982.
It was dedicated in 1983 to commemorate the 500th anniversary of Luther’s birth. A revamping project is underway.
Check out these Luther/Reformation videos on YouTube.
We are considering offering a Film Festival featuring them on a campus “big screen” this fall.
