Luther as a philosopher: On the Bondage of the Will

June 13 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free
The titlepage of the first edition (1525) of Luther's "De Servo Arbitrio"

This activity is organised by Prof. Bob Stern (Sheffield) and funded through the White Rose Universities Collaboration fund as part of a project to explore Luther’s influence on philosophy.

It is the second workshop and will run as a reading group, studying a section of Luther’s Bondage of the Will. Originally written in Latin and known as ‘De Servo Arbitrio‘, the text was a response to Erasmus’ arguments about free will.

The reading group will examine the section WA 661-669,* where Luther criticises Erasmus’s arguments for free will. The recommended translation is Rupp & Watson.

All are welcome to attend and there is no registration fee.

*WA stands for Weimarer Ausgabe, that is the standard German edition of Luther’s Collected Works. An index for online versions of many of Luther’s works can be found here.
