Luther and ecumenism
Luther und die Ökumene
This seminar looks at the bilateral dialogues of the Evangelical Lutheran church bodies, asking how Luther’s theology has actually contributed to the final documents of various dialogues. The participants can prepare small presentations about one dialogue. Both critical and appreciative voices are welcome. On the basis of presentations and discussions, the seminar aims at formulating hermeneutical rules regarding the relationship between historical differences and contemporary ecumenical aims. The participants are encouraged to present ideas for such rules already in their presentations.
