Background: Genesee Community College’s History Club is proud to welcome Dr. Jeffery Glodzik of D’Youville College to campus on Wednesday, March 11, 2020 at 7 p.m. to present Erasmus: The Most Important Figure in the Reformation Era?

The famous Dutch humanist Erasmus of Rotterdam played perhaps the most important role in the intellectual world and the religious conflicts in the sixteenth century. His satirical critiques of Catholicism opened the door for more pointed criticisms and allowed for the challenges taken up by Luther. His disagreements with Luther after the onset of Reformation solidified the differences between Catholic and Protestant and ultimately made permanent the division in Western Christianity.

The show begins at 7 p.m. in room T102 of the Conable Technology Building on GCC’s Batavia Campus and is free and open to the public.
