The Kessler Conversations 2021

Kessler Conversations

Named after the world-renowned Richard C. Kessler Reformation Collection held at Pitts Theology Library, these online, 30-45 minute conversations offer opportunities for the general public to learn about the events in Europe the 16th century and to consider what they may tell us about the issues facing our communities. Conversations in a given academic semester focus on a single contemporary theme and trace it back to the Reformers. These conversations are free and open to the public, but registration is required. Below is registration for the Fall 2021 conversations, as well as archived versions of the Spring 2021 and Fall 2020 conversations.
