    The X Factor in the Reformation

    What was the X factor that gave Martin Luther an edge in changing the most powerful organisation in 16th century Europe? 

    If Pope Leo X had engaged with the young monk’s protestations instead of dismissing them, would there have been any need to split the church in two? 

    Luther’s excommunication destroyed the possibility of dialogue between opposing factions in his time, but today how well do churches handle diversity and difference within the fold, while staying true to their central beliefs? 

    A panel of distinguished guests will debate the X factors in the Reformation, and discuss the intentions and consequences of one of the world’s major religious reformations. The forum will be hosted by Rachael Kohn and recorded for ABC Radio National’s The Spirit of Things.
