Reformatie in Groningen 1517-2017

The Reformaton in Groningen 1517-2017 Exhibition: 23 September 2017 - 17 June 2018

Martin Lutherā€™s criticisms of the Roman Catholic Church in 1517 sparked the beĀ­ginning of the Reformation. A period of reĀ­ligious struggle, riots, war and persecution followed, resulting in different Protestant churches. Groningen became definitively Calvinist in 1594. This exhibition features silver objects, antique Bibles, and portraits of famous preachers from the early years of the Reformation churches.
