Decatur (GA) Daily: 500 years later: Protestants to mark anniversary of Luther's 95 theses

Oct. 13, 2017
David M. Whitford, Ph.D., professor of religion in Baylor’s College of Arts & Sciences whose research and writing focuses on the social, cultural and political impact of the European Reformations of the 16th century, spoke about Martin Luther’s view of two kingdoms — the church and the state – at a lecture series hosted by Athens State’s Center for Religion and Ethics. “He believed the church should do its job and the state should do its job,” Whitford said. “Some people see in the two kingdoms as the very earliest beginnings of separation of church and state.
