Students post Martin Luther’s ‘95 Theses’ on Catholic Student Center doors

| Senior News Editor

Replaying a scene from almost 500 years ago, a group of Lutheran students posted Martin Luther’s “95 Theses” on the door of the Catholic Student Center late last week.

About 10 students posted copies of the documents that spurred the Protestant Reformation on the center’s doors Thursday in what they said was a lighthearted gesture intended to bring interfaith dialogue to campus in the same way Luther did to Europe in the 16th century.

“We wanted to re-inspire dialogue on what it means to be a faithful person on campus,” junior Abby Godec said.

She said that the students involved were surprised not to hear any sort of response, though the pages had been removed by the end of the weekend.

The matter was not brought up at the Catholic Student Center’s Sunday night mass.
