Photo: KalleJipp/photocaseSometimes one must explore new paths."Here I stand, I can do no other ..." This sentence, attributed to Luther, summarises the Reformer's claim of having a standpoint against all authorities and principles of his time. Not always did he concede this freedom to others. The Reformation has liberated faith from regulations and constraints, making it capable of action – however, it also took action against others who interpreted these newly found freedoms in a different way. Under the headline "Reformation and Tolerance", the theme year 2013 of the Luther Decade will examine the achievements as well as the downsides.
