2017 The Bible and the Reformation
Baylor Symposium on Faith and Culture
Wednesday, October 25-Friday, October 27
 
Conference Description

The year 2017 marks the five-hundredth anniversary of the beginning of the European Reformation, a time of incalculable significance for the history of Christianity. This was the decisive moment at which the Bible was translated into the leading European languages. The rise of printing vastly enhanced the significance of that change, for the first time placing the book in the hands of ordinary people. That movement began a cultural and religious revolution that remains very much alive today, after a half-millennium. In that sense, we still today live in the shadow of the Reformation, and arguably in its still flowing currents. As theologian Karl Barth famously declared, "Ecclesia semper reformanda" – the church is always to be reformed.

The deadline to register is Friday, October 20, 2017.
