Hear the ideas behind Erasmus and Luther’s infamous debate over free will from 1524-5.

Join us on Wed., Nov. 1 from 3:45-5:15pm in MAC 208 for a recreation of Desiderius Erasmus and Martin Luther’s printed debate on the freedom of the enslaved will.  Prof. Derek Jeffreys will argue for the ideas of Erasmus, who supported the existence of free will and divine grace, while Prof. Christopher Martin will take up the views of Luther, who rejected the existence of free will. Prof. Emily Ransom will introduce the context of this historic debate and audience members will get a chance to “vote” for the winner!
