The 2015 Pro Ecclesia Conference

“Remembering the Reformation Together: Commemorate? Celebrate? Repent?”

Cosponsored by the Center for Catholic and Evangelical Theology and the  School of Theology and Religious Studies of The Catholic University of America

7:00 PM, Monday, June 15, 2015, through 12:30 PM, Wednesday, June 17, 2015

On the campus of the Catholic University of America, Washington, DC

In 1517, Martin Luther set off the Protestant Reformation.  Can Christians of differing traditions commemorate the upcoming 500th anniversary of this event together?  How do we understand and assess the Reformation today?  What calls for celebration?  What calls for repentance?  Can the Reformation anniversary be an occasion for greater mutual understanding among Catholics, Orthodox, and Protestants?  An internationally diverse group of scholars will take up these questions.

Among the Speakers:

Stanley Hauerwas, Duke University
Bp. Charles Morerod, O.P., Lausanne, Switzerland
Sarah Hinlicky Wilson, Strasbourg Ecumenical Institute
Thomas Fitzgerald, Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology
Michael Root, The Catholic University of America
