Luther’s theology 2013

Annual lectures in Helsinki on Luther’s theology will give an overview of the Reformator’s theology. A special emphasis is laid on such topics as theology and philosophy, theology of love and doctrine of Trinity. Results of the recent Finnish scholarship on Luther’s theology are discussed in detail. No previous knowledge on Luther’s theology is required, but we strongly recommend that the student is familiar with the basic facts of Luther’s life before attending the lectures, since Luther’s life is not discussed in detail during the lectures. There are many biographies available on Luther, such as Martin E. Marty, Martin Luther (Viking Penguin, 2004) or Martin Brecht, Martin Luther, 3 vols. (Fortress, 1985-93).

The lectures will take place on Tuesdays, during the Spring term 2013 from January 12th to May 7th. Lecturer is Dr. Pekka Kärkkäinen, University Lecturer in Ecumenical Theology.
