Spring Event

Martin Luther

His Enduring Legacy

Ursula O'Donovan PhD

This Event commemorates the 500th anniversary
of the posting of
Martin Luther’s 95 Theses or Disputations
to the door of All Saints Church in Wittenberg in 1517.
This date is regarded as the beginning of the
Protestant Reformation.

"Dr O'Donovan will provide an overall introduction to Luther's thought including his social and educational ideas and his stress on the vernacular. She will also outline the shape of his theological reflection and consider how this might lead us forward ecumenically."

Ursula O’Donovan was born in Germany, living in Ireland since 1981. Studied for her primary degree in English and History at the University of Hamburg and at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz; the degree was recognised as equivalent to M.A. by the N.U.I in 1981. Higher Dip. in Ed.. 1982.
Obtained a Ph.D. in German from the N.U.I. in 1988. Was awarded a Ph.D. in Theology on Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s “Religionless Christianity” by Queen’s University Belfast, in 2007.
