10th Annual JAF Debate - The Protestant Reformation

Are you going?

Each spring semester students participate in an Oxford-style public debate. The debate is a venerable institution in Western higher education dating from the medieval universities. While largely an exercise in public oratory, the JAF annual debate is also a time for members of the Gordon community to engage the cumulative work of collaborating students.

Resolved: The Protestant Reformation of the sixteenth century was a success.

Affirmative Case: Elspeth Currie, Maria Constantine, Claire Campbell, Amaylah Israel, Justin Kennedy, Paul Stapleton, Christina Urbano

Negative Case: Paul Crookston, Daruenie Andujar, Stephanie Antonucci, Mary Hierholzer, Andrew Manning, Hannah Otto, Jessica Richmond
