Luther@500 Conference

Now that registrations have closed, the excitement is building for this international conference for Lutheran theologians, pastors and lay people … in fact, for anyone who’s interested in how the Reformation speaks into our world today.


The Australian Lutheran Institute for Theology and Ethics (ALITE), in cooperation with the faculty of Australian Lutheran College (ALC), is hosting the conference on the theology of Martin Luther, to mark the 500th anniversary in 2017 of the Lutheran Reformation.

Six international Luther scholars, as well as several ALC and other Australian Luther scholars, will present papers based on original research and thought.

The Luther@500 conference will be held from 28 June to 3 July 2016 at the Catholic Leadership Centre in East Melbourne.

Over 160 registrations have been received, from 15 countries.

It’s exciting for the LCA, through ALC/ALITE, to be hosting this international event, so keep an ear out for news and outcomes.
