Exhibition Marking the500th Anniversary of theProtestant Reformation 

The Huntington Library, 
Art Collections, and Botanical 
Gardens mark the 500th 
anniversary of the Protestant 
Reformation with an exhibition 
that explores the power of the 
written word as a mechanism for 
radical change. The exhibition 
draws almost exclusively from 
The Huntington’s collections 
and includes about 50 rare 
manuscripts, books, and prints 
made between the 1400s and 
1648 (the end of the ThirtyYears War). “The Reformation: 
From the Word to the World” is 
on view in the West Hall of the 
Library through Feb. 26.
