Again during the Spring term in Helsinki, lectures on Luther’s theology will give an overview of the Reformer’s theology. Topics include: theology of love, justification, doctrine of the Trinity, Luther on music etc. Results of the recent Finnish scholarship on Luther’s theology are discussed in the lectures. 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 2014 from January 28th to April 15th. Lecturers will be Dr. Pekka Kärkkäinen and Dr. Olli-Pekka Vainio, University Lecturers in Ecumenical Theology. For more information, see this page.
