In celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, United Lutheran Church is hosting an exhibit titled Here I Stand, a collection of 30 museum-quality posters about Martin Luther and the Reformation that will be on loan from the German Consulate in Chicago.

Modeled on the exhibitions that took place during 2016 in New York, Minneapolis, and Atlanta, the Here I Stand exhibit at United Lutheran Church, from October 8 to October 15, 2017, narrates the story of the Reformation and the global impact it has had in the succeeding centuries. Each one of the 30 posters is 36”x24” and will be displayed in a large open area at the rear of the church’s main worship space.

With modern, scientifically substantiated, and attractively designed information graphics, the exhibit shows the most important events in the history of the Reformation and its impact up to the present. The exhibit provides insights into the time prior to the Reformation and then directs its focus to the dynamics of the Reformation that unfolded after Luther’s posting of his 95 Theses against the sale of indulgences. The exhibit deals with central questions of the history of the Reformation: What was actually new about Luther’s theology? What happened in Wittenberg in 1517? How did the new teaching spread?
