At the 15th Annual Gardiner Lecture, Professor John Coffey of the University of Leicester spoke on ‘The Reformation and British Values: Protestantism and Liberty Revisited’. On this 500th Anniversary of the Reformation, much has been written about Martin Luther, who was a Roman Catholic monk, and the ’95 Theses’. The principles of these gave rise to what we now consider ‘British values’ such as individual liberty and toleration as well as the rule of law and democracy. The speaker told how views had varied over 500 years so that there are now various dissenting protestant movements.
