Digital exhibition from the university library
On Reformation Day, the university library invites you to an online painting exhibition with a lecture. The date of the opening has been chosen deliberately: October 31st is a day of remembrance that commemorates Martin Luther's posting of theses against abuses in church practice at the time. The team at the university library lets viewers take a digital look at its exhibition "If the reformers would visit us today ...". Library director Raul Cervantes describes the issue as follows: “In this corona situation, culture in Friedensau should not be neglected. That is why it only takes one click - and the audience stands in front of the portraits of the reformers, which are currently on display in the library, but can no longer be viewed directly due to the library being closed. The speaker, church historian Dr. Johannes Hartlapp, explains in his lecture the importance of the individual personalities at that time 500 years ago and for us today. "
"If the reformers would visit us today ..." – We people in the 21st century take almost for granted the right to education, school attendance for all children, equality between men and women, the separation of church and state - to name just a few. The Reformation 500 years ago inspired all of this. Let's get to know better the people who stand for the Reformation.
The Friedensau Adventist University is a state-recognized university sponsored by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Eight B.A. and M.A. degree programs - some of them part-time - in the fields of Christian Social Work and Theology as well as a 'German as a Foreign Language' course can be taken here. Around 30 nations are represented among the students and lecturers.
