Luther500 is an international theological conference on the theology of Martin Luther. It is being held to mark the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation (in 2017) and intends to explore, positively and critically, the reception of Martin Luther’s theology today and its significance for Christianity in the future, particularly in ecumenical and global dimensions. The conference is being sponsored by Australian Lutheran College (University of Divinity) (ALC) through its research centre, the Australian Lutheran Institute for Theology and Ethics (ALITE). The conference will be held 28 June-3 July, 2016, at the Catholic Leadership Centre in East Melbourne, immediately preceding the annual ANZATS conference, also to be held in Melbourne. Thus one can attend both conferences back-to-back.
Luther500 will feature six international Luther scholars as keynote speakers, as well as eight other speakers offering shorter papers in elective sessions, including a number of our ALC faculty.
