    Outstanding Reformation Conference at Yale Divinity School this week–with historians and theologians who dared to inquire about the Reformation’s impact today.  During the Conference, Yale unveiled an historic Portrait of Reformers patterned after 1640’s lithographs common in England and the Netherlands.   Recent restoration unveils Catholic opponents at foot of the table who confess: “The Candle is lighted, and we cannot blow it out.”  More polemics than we are used to today in ecumenism…

    You recognize the mover and shakers?   Luther, Calvin, Melanchthon, and a dozen others… Compare with English lithograph printed 1640.
