Teasing out meaning: some techniques and procedures in early Christian exegesis 

Author of the influential book ‘Biblical Exegesis and the Formation of Christian Culture’ and numerous other monographs and papers, Professor Frances Young, emerita Edward Cadbury Professor of Theology at the University of Birmingham, will consider some of the ways in which the early Christians approached the Bible as the key text of their religion. The self-identity of the Christian community and the development of theology all hinge on this formative period in the life of the Church.

The 450th Anniversary of the Second Helvetic Confession

450_Jahre_Zweites_Helvetisches_BekenntnisFreitag, 07. Oktober 2016 11:15 – Samstag, 08. Oktober 2016 15:15: 450 Jahre zweites helvetisches Bekenntnis, Tagung im Kulturhaus Helferei, Zürich.

Das «Bekenntnis und einfache Erläuterung des orthodoxen Glaubens und der katholischen Lehren der reinen christlichen Religion», kurz Confessio Helvetica posterior/Zweites Helvetisches Bekenntnis, von Heinrich Bullinger 1561 verfasst und 1566 gedruckt, gilt als repräsentative Zusammenfassung der schweizerischen Reformation. Es gewann dann Bedeutung auch weit über die Eidgenossenschaft hinaus und trug massgeblich zur Festigung der Lehre und Bekenntnisbildung des reformierten Protestantismus bei. Als internationaler Exportschlager war das Zweite Helvetische Bekenntnis immer wieder Anlas für theologische und kirchliche Auseinandersetzungen.

An der Tagung zum 450-jährigen Jubiläum referieren und diskutieren namhafte Expertinnen und Experten aus historischer und systematisch-theologischer Sicht über Geschichte und Aktualität des Zweiten Helvetischen Bekenntnisses. Die Veranstaltung richtet sich sowohl an Studierende, Pfarrpersonen und kirchliche Fachleute als auch an ein theologisch und historisch interessiertes Publikum. Die Tagung kann als Studienleistung anerkannt werden.

Anmeldung bis 30. August 2016.
