Why is the Reformation Important Today?

Why is the Reformation Important today? Come find out at a panel discussion organized by Professor Michael Seidman of the UNCW History Department and hosted by Randall Library. It's been 500 years since the Protestant Reformation - the first global media revolution - and its effects are still felt today. From the printing press to propaganda, from bibles to the Protestant diaspora, there will be lots to discuss.
