The Leap Of Faith

On the Leap of Faith this week, as the 500th-anniversary approaches of the publishing of his 95 theses, by Martin Luther in Wittenburg ... we've gathered a panel to learn more about this German Augustinian Monk and to discuss the implications of his actions on us today. 

On the panel, the Rev. Dr Martyn Cowan of Union Theological College in Belfast,  Dr Alison Forrestal, a lecturer at NUI Galway and Professor Daire Keogh, Professor of History and Deputy President of Dublin City University. The challenge, to explore the impact of someone referred to as the last medieval man and the first modern one.
