Reformation 500th Anniversary

Luther’s hammer and nail confrontation over the use of indulgences by the Roman Catholic Church is considered the starting point of the Reformation. Below is a catalog of articles posted on Presbyterians of the Past. The titles are listed in reverse order with the most recently posted first.
