Call for Proposals
This Group invites submissions on the following topics:
- Luther and the apocalyptic. The disruptive and eruptive apocalyptic gestures of Luther call for a new appreciation of his readings of Paul, Revelation, and Daniel, and further exploration of the influence of Luther’s reading of the eschaton and on subsequent global Lutheran and philosophical traditions. Papers addressing these issues and others broadly related to the topic are especially welcome
- For a cosponsored session with the Augustine and Augustinianims Group, contemporary appropriations of Augustine and Luther, with particular focus on Augustinian and/or Lutheran theological or philosophical intellectual projects in the in twentieth and twenty-first centuries. How are specific currents in either Augustine’s or Luther’s thought making their presence felt in our world? Papers representing a wide range of disciplines and geographies are most welcome. Of particular interest are proposals that illumine the points of tension, confrontation, and transformation that are inevitably present in the appropriation of major figures from the past
This Group seeks to provide an avenue for a comprehensive conversation on both Lutheran history and thought in the global context. In so doing, it is able to draw on an immensely rich tradition that goes far beyond Lutheran parochial interests as it includes the relationship to other Christian traditions as well as cultures in the global South.
