Lutheranism & the Classics

Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Ind.

October 2-3, 2014

God became incarnate in Christ Jesus at a specific time in history (Gal. 4:4), so how might Lutherans read the Bible, the Confessions and developments in light of history? What role does history play in Lutheran education? These and other questions will be discussed at the conference to be hosted by Concordia Theological Seminary under the theme, “Lutherans Read History” as we celebrate Lutheranism’s engagement with historians of the past, and their value for the propagation of the faith to present and future generations.

The conference features three plenary papers, a banquet address and 30 sectional presenters on such sessions as ancient and Reformation-era historians, how Luther viewed history, hymnody, medieval preaching, Canon Law and pedagogy. Latin will be used in three worship settings and there will be a session by Mr. Brandon Booth (Worldview Academy) designed especially for Lutheran teachers, classical educators and homeschoolers.
