Convocation

Join us for Knox College’s 173rd Convocation, May 9-10, 2017.


Our Convocation speaker will be Professor Jane Dawson of New College, the University of Edinburgh. Professor Dawson is a renowned scholar of the Reformation period in Scotland, and her recent book John Knox (2015) is the definitive biography of one of Scotland’s great reformers.

2017 marks the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther nailing his 95 theses to the door of the Wittenberg church on October 31, 1517 — commonly considered the beginning of the 16th century Reformation.
