A German Resource on 1517-2017

on June 22nd, 2014 by admin | No Comments »

At some point late in the summer, we will set up a blog dedicated to next summer’s conference theme: “Remembering the Reformation Together: Commemorate? Celebrate? Repent?”.  In the meantime, I will be posting here links to various ecumenically relevant resources related to 2017 and the 500th anniversary of the beginning of the Reformation.  An excellent collection of essays, mostly by Germans, but in English, is here.  One can see here that in Germany the commemoration of 1517 is not simply a church event, but a much more broadly cultural, and even tourist, event.  I haven’t read them yet, but I would think the essays by Theo Dieter and Volker Leppin would be particularly worth reading.
