Dany Brown, Joël Fillion, members of the Ensemble J’ay pris amours – Michelle Parent, Alexanne Trudelle-Caron, Richard Pageau and Sylvain Thibault – and the Rev. Darla Sloan, pastor of Église Unie Saint-Pierre presented a special event about Martin Luther at the Maison de la littérature.

On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther, a German professor of theology, composer, priest and monk, supposedly nailed a document to the door of All Saints Church in Wittenberg, disputing the Catholic view on indulgences.
