Aarhus: Rethink Reformation
1st November 2017 - 3rd November 2017
500 Reformations speaker Prof. Robert Stern is delivering a keynote lecture as part of Rethink Reformation.
This three-day event takes its theme from Aarhus’s year as European Capital of Culture, Rethink.
From the Rethink website:
The engagement with the Reformation is purposefully broadly conceived. Clearly, the reformation did not die with Luther, but is still alive and kicking. The conference thus reflects the ongoing theological, philosophical, sociological and political repercussions of the Lutheran Reformation and, more specifically, it seeks to problematize and rethink its strikingly two-sided legacy: Historically situated at the divide between the Middle Ages and Modernity, the Reformation both sacralized and secularized Europe. Likewise, it both preserved the hierarchical structures of society and propagated ideas of freedom and equality that had, and still have, a decisive impact on how Europeans relate to themselves, to God, and the world at large.
[T]he first day is devoted to theological and philosophical questions concerning the statuses of human, God and world, the second day focusses on sociological and political theoretical questions concerning Reformation and Modernity and the relationships between values and community. The third day reconsiders in light of current exigencies the history of European identities with special attention to the roles of Europe’s Others.
Registration closes on 15 October 2017. For more information, including conference fees, visit the Rethink Reformation website.
