Professor John Maxfield teaches the Quest course at Edmonton seminary and online.

EDMONTON – A Spring Quest course from Concordia Lutheran Seminary, Edmonton (CLS) taught by Dr. John Maxfield will continue tracing the development of the Reformation. Beginning Wednesday, April 11, the four-week course picks up the timeline after Luther’s dramatic confrontation with the emperor at the Diet of Worms in 1521.

The evening sessions at the seminary or online will trace the developments of Luther’s Reformation, first from exile, then as he takes up leadership of the reform movement in Wittenberg, and finally to the challenges of shaping the reform of Christendom in the face of ecclesiastical and political opposition as well as alternative reform visions among evangelical reformers. These developments during the 1520s led to the public defense of the Lutheran Reformation before the emperor at the 1530 Diet of Augsburg through the Augsburg Confession.

Dr. John A. Maxfield is an ordained pastor of Lutheran Church–Canada and serves as Associate Professor of Religious Studies at Concordia University of Edmonton. He teaches History of Christianity, Theology, and European History, specializing and publishing in the areas of the German Reformation and Luther studies.

The Quest classes are scheduled for April 11, 18, 25, and May 2 from 7–9 pm (MDT). CLS will webcast the free course so that individuals and groups may participate online.
