From Wittenberg to the World

Essays on the Reformation and Its Legacy in Honor of Robert Kolb

This summer was the 13th International Congress of Luther Research. The Congress is generally held every 5 years, and continues be the venue for the world’s most prolific and influential Luther scholars. This year was particularly special because it coincided with the 500th anniversary of Luther’s posting of his 95 Theses Against Indulgences in 1517. And so the conference was held in sleepy little Wittenberg. And on August 5, the final evening of the Congress, a beautiful banquet was held in the courtyard of Luther’s own house, the old Augustinian monastery. It was at that final venue that the most special moment happened. The forthcoming Festschrift for Prof. Robert Kolb was announced to enthusiastic applause. Kolb has been a long time attendee and contributor to the Luther Congress and to Reformation research in general. Almost two-thirds of the volume was comprised of essays by scholars in attendance and the majority were written by scholars who had participated in the past. Contributors are for instance Amy Nelson Burnett, Irene Dingel, Richard Muller, and Timothy Wengert.
