500 Years of Reformation in Groningen


23 September 2017 to 07 January 2018

Martin Luther's criticisms of the Roman Catholic Church in 1517 sparked the beginning of the Reformation. A period of religious 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.
