The Cosmic Light Holistic Care (CLHC), a Taiwan-based Christian organization, started a photographic exhibition tour called "Martin Luther and the Reformation" in Taiwan on October 20, 2017.
The international exhibition of the famous reformer and the 500th anniversary of the Ninety-five Theses debuted last August in North America, according to Christian Daily.
The official website of the CLHC shared that the exhibition covered the Martin Luther's historical background, his boyhood, theology, and his personality. It also showed the publication of the Ninety-five Theses and responses and debate caused by it, the influence and contributions the Reformation brought to human culture and society, the significance and meaning of Martin's thought in modern culture and society as well as the Reformation as a good example of modern people.
Professor Lin Zhiping, director of the holistic care institution, confessed that the exhibition was challenging. For example, some original German resources were translated into Chinese by professionals and the translation remains to be verified in comparison with relevant English material.
In 1979, the organization published the first book Proceedings of Historic Photos of Christianity and China compiled by material for exhibitions. Since then, it planned many themed and illustrated exhibitions like commemorating Robert Morrison in 2006, James Laidlaw Maxwell in 2016, and celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Chinese Revolution in 2011.
