The Mark A. Noll Annual Lecture in the History of Christianity
In 2010, Dr. Jennifer Powell McNutt (degree coordinator of the M.A. History of Christianity program since 2008) launched an annual lecture in History of Christianity at Wheaton College with the support of the Biblical and Theological Studies Department. The purpose of the lecture is to help raise the profile of the field of Christian History and bring attention to Christianity’s past as an invaluable resource for Christians in the present. Since then, the department has welcomed accomplished scholars in the discipline to share their expertise and wisdom in historical research with the campus community and beyond. In 2017, the lecture was named in honor of Professor Emeritus Dr. Mark Noll and as a way to mark the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.
