Martin Luther at the Diet of Worms, painting by Anton Von Wermer, 1877.

Featuring: Presentations at “The Forgotten Luther” symposium held in Washington, D.C., in November, 2017

When remembering the Reformation, Lutherans typically think about Martin Luther’s theological reforms, such as summarized in his phrase “Saved by grace alone”. They often overlook Luther’s social reforms and the part of his theology addressing care for our neighbor’s well being.

At this symposium, leading scholars, theologians and Lutheran church leaders examine Luther’s legacy. They find that he was not only concerned with directly alleviating hunger and poverty, but also correcting the systematic causes of these problems in society. The result is that from both our heritage and our theology (eg., Luther’s Catechisms), addressing social problems is seen to be a very Lutheran thing to do.
