To coincide with the 500th anniversary of the beginning of the Protestant Reformation, the Newberry Library in Chicago is hosting a multimedia project, “Religious Change, 1450-1700,” which traces “how religion and print challenged authority, upended society, and made the medieval world modern."

As part of this multimedia project, the Newberry exhibit “Religious Change and Print, 1450-1700” (opening 14 September 2017) draws on over 150 objects from the Newberry’s collection to show how people of the time —like preachers, teachers, travelers, writers, and printers—experienced the Reformation and the rapid changes that the interrelationship of religion and print media brought about.

About the library

The JKM Library serves the students, faculty and staff of the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago and McCormick Theological Seminary. The JKM in our name was — from 1975 to 2004 — an initialism for Jesuit-Krauss-McCormick: Jesuit from the Jesuit School of Theology, which closed in 1981; Krauss from the Krauss Library, the original name of the merged collection when LSTC moved to Hyde Park in 1967; and McCormick for McCormick Theological Seminary, which joined the Jesuits and LSTC in the Hyde Park neighborhood in 1975). In 2004, in an agreement worked out with the Chicago Province of the Society of Jesus, the name Jesuit was dropped, and we became officially known as the JKM Library.
