Martin Luther and the Reformation

2017 sees the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Ernie Rea and guests discuss how Martin Luther's thought and personality affected its course.

This year sees the 500th anniversary of the moment when Martin Luther sparked the Reformation by - tradition has it - nailing his 95 theses to a church door in Wittenberg. Ernie Rea and guests discuss what led Luther to take this step, how his thought and personality affected the course of the Reformation and whether - were he to walk into the 21st century - he might actually find himself to be a good Catholic.

Producer: Rosie Dawson.
