Prof Insights: Faculty-Led Workshop Series – Professor Herrmann
Due to concerns about the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, this workshop will be held online.
Reforming Christian Devotion
As in Martin Luther’s day, we are surrounded by devotional resources and practices, as well as ideas of what constitutes Christian devotion and facilitates spiritual growth. In spite of the confusion, Luther did not start from scratch but offered guidance for evangelical ways to practice Christian devotion with what was available. This workshop will explore Luther’s insights and principles for the reform of Christian devotion and draw from them to consider our own context in today’s church.
Registration deadline: July 13, 2020
Dr. Erik Herrmann
Herrmann is emerging as one of the leading Luther scholars in the world as evidenced by an invitation to give a plenary paper at the 2017 International Congress for Luther Research in Wittenberg, Germany. His academic interests in Luther studies are complemented by an equally strong interest in questions related to Lutheran piety, and in the devotional writings of the late Middle Ages and Reformation as they pertain to pastoral care. He currently serves as associate professor of Historical Theology and chairman of the department of Historical Theology at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis.
