The Numismatic Luther: Celebrating the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation

"The Numismatic Luther," a special exhibit in honor of the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, continues to be available as a digital exhibit: The Numismatic Luther: The Frederick J. and Joyce Schumacher Collection.

This outstanding collection of Luther-related medals and coins has been put together by Frederick J. Schumacher (Class of 1978) over much of a lifetime and represents Luther commemoration over many centuries. "More different medals and coins have been struck relating to Luther and his life and teachings than any other single person in history," writes Rev. Schumacher in an article he published about his collection.

Thorne, Jr.), Father Forgive Me for I Have Trolled: Re-Imagining the Scope of Religious Confession in the Digital World (Michael J. Toy).
