On October 31st, 2017, the German Protestant Church and the Federal Republic of Germany will celebrate the 500-year anniversary of the day Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses on the door of the All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg. This act heralded the age of Reformation which foreshadowed the modern division of labour between the market, the state, and civil society.
Joining forces, Zeppelin University’s Leadership Excellence Institute Zeppelin, the Social-Sciences Institute of the German Protestant Church, the Protestant Academy, the Evangelische Bank, and the Stiftung Sozialer Protestantismus will seize this opportunity to host a rather special research symposium:
Luther 2017: Protestant Resources for the Next Modernity
Französische Friedrichstadtkirche, Berlin (Mitte)
The conference is aimed at scholars, various stakeholders in society, and the general public. Taking the resources generated by the Reformation movement as a starting point, participants will be encouraged to discuss various reference frameworks for future action in the economy, the state, and civil society. Introductory notes given by Prof Josef Wieland and Prof Gerhard Wegner will set the background against which renowned international speakers will provide ample inspiration for multi-perspective debates. Keynotes will be given by Prof Friedhelm Graf and Dr Manfred Gentz.
