Annual Topic 2016

The Reformation spread from Wittenberg to the rest of the world. More than 400 million Protestants worldwide have spiritual links in their religious life with the events of the Reformation. On the eve of the Reformation’s anniversary our attention will be on the global power of its influence.

Annual Topic 2015

On the occasion of the 500th anniversary of the birth of Cranach the Younger, the focus turns to the art of the Reformation period. The Reformation was also a media revolution. A new language of words and images was created. What “images” does faith assume today, and how is its message communicated through media, pictures and language?

Annual Topic 2014

Authority and personal responsibility, faith and power, freedom of conscience and human rights: these are issues of the Reformation that remain with us today and deserve wide discussion in churches and society.

Annual Topic 2013

According to the opinion of the Reformers, faith and conscience are fundamentally free. However, Luther's demand for non-violent arguments was not always fulfilled. And his own tolerance also had its limitations, which were far more narrow than those later established by the human rights and the constitution.

Annual Topic 2012

The Reformation laid a foundation for the European musical culture – from congregational singing to music-making in the home. Protagonists of this movement are composers like Bach, Schütz, Telemann and Händel, but also the St. Thomas Choir of Leipzig, which celebrates its 800th anniversary in 2012.

Annual Topic 2011

Freedom – this word of desire has shaped Protestant Christianity from its very beginning. Reformation and freedom are inextricably linked in word and faith, in action and attitude.

Annual Topic 2010

Philipp Melanchthon provided the focus of 2010. As a memorial year, it commemorates the 450th anniversary of his death. Luther's collaborator excelled above all as a professor and educational reformer.

Annual Topic 2009

Calvin is considered to be a founding father of Reformed Protestantism. On the occasion of his 500th birthday, the focus will be placed on his understanding of the church and his business ethics.

Annual Topic 2008

In Autumn 1508, Martin Luther came for the first time to Wittenberg, the city which was to become his most important place of work. 500 years later, in September 2008, the Luther Decade was solemnly opened in the Castle Church in Wittenberg..
