Dr. Michael Bruening, associate professor of history, presented his research on the Protestant Reformation during a conference at the University of Geneva in Switzerland in September. Bruening’s paper is titled “Guillaume Farel and the German Reformers: The Origins of Reformed Doctrine in French-speaking Switzerland.” He presented his paper in French.

Bruening also served on the advisory committee for the conference, named “The International Construction of the Reformation in French-speaking Switzerland: Religious Currents, Social Changes, and the Circulation of Ideas in the Time of Martin Luther.”

The conference was held in conjunction with the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s posting of the Ninety-five Theses, which is traditionally seen as the start of the Protestant Reformation.
