Vortrag von Prof. Dr. Andreas Tacke: “Cranach zwischen altem und neuem Glauben: Überlegungen zum Kunstmarkt der Reformationszeit” am 12.09.2014 um 20.00 Uhr in der Europäischen Melanchthon-Akademie Bretten.

Die Internationale Martin Luther Stiftung im Herbst in Zürich

Posted in Conferences, Luther, Zwingli by Jim on August 6, 2014

Für die diesjährige Wirtschaftskonferenz und die Verleihung der LutherRose 2014 hat die Internationale Martin Luther Stiftung (IMLS) Zürich als Veranstaltungsort gewählt: Ausgangsort der Reformation in der Schweiz und Wirkungsfeld des Reformators Huldrych (Ulrich) Zwingli (1484-1531).

„Auch wenn für unsere Stiftung der Reformator Martin Luther natürlich im Mittelpunkt steht, ist uns doch bewusst, dass die Reformation ein europäisches Projekt war, bei dem andere Reformatoren eine ebenso wichtige Rolle spielten. Nur so wurden diese verschiedenen Reformationen zu einem Ereignis von weltweiter Bedeutung.“, sagt der Vorstandsvorsitzende Michael J. Inacker. „Wir freuen uns schon heute auf diese Reise nach Zürich und danken unseren Schweizer Partnern für die hervorragende Zusammenarbeit.“

Das aktuelle Konferenz-Programm finden Sie hier.
