In Religious Change and Print, 1450-1700, visitors will see the Reformation through the eyes of the people who experienced the transformations it spread across Europe and the Americas: preachers and teachers, travelers and traders, writers and printers.

Featuring more than 150 objects from the Newberry’s collection—from Bibles, tracts, and poems to maps, music, and art—Religious Change and Print will show how the intertwining of religion and print led to realignments of power that even revolutionaries had trouble keeping up with.

This exhibition is part of Religious Change, 1450 - 1700, a multidisciplinary project exploring how religion and print made the medieval world modern.
