From the Angelico Press description -
"In October 2016, in Lund, Sweden, Pope Francis met with Lutheran church leaders to inaugurate a year of commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the posting of Martin LutherÔÇÖs 95 Theses in 1517, the first salvo in his rebellion against the Catholic Church. What was the nature of that revolution of half a millennium ago? Upon what new trajectory did it launch human history? What were its hidden consequences? And why does Pope FrancisÔÇÖs proposed rapprochement of Catholic and Lutheran churches matter?

In the twelve essays contained in this volumeÔÇöbased upon lectures delivered at the 2016 Roman Forum Summer Symposium on Lake Garda, ItalyÔÇöthe authors assess the impact of LutherÔÇÖs novel theological and philosophical doctrines on faith, political theory, law, ethics, economics, and scienceÔÇöas well as his role in the devastation of Christendom and the creation in its place of the contemporary secular culture of the West. Acknowledging that the Reformation is not ÔÇ£the sole cause of the social problems of modernityÔÇØ but rather ÔÇ£one major cause in a chain of causes,ÔÇØ the authors nevertheless make it abundantly clear that there is ÔÇ£nothing about Luther and his Protestant rebellion that we should celebrate.ÔÇØ With essays from John Rao, Chris Ferrara, Brian McCall, and eight others, Luther and His Progeny is a signal contribution toward understanding the full import of the Protestant revolt."
