Historical Continuity, New Beginnings and the Formation of Protestant Identity
Principal Dr. Anton Tikhomirow (ELKRAS) /
KR Raphael Quandt (ELKiB) together with PD Dr.
Nicole Grochowina (Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg)
There are Protestant churches that have shown unbroken continuity since the time of the Reformation. Others, however, have experienced painful breaks and new beginnings in their history. What are the differences in identity formation? What processes have they gone through? The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Bavaria (ELKiB) and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Russia and Other States (ELCROS) will serve as examples:
Recommended speakers: KR Raphael Quandt (ELKiB), Dr Anton Tikhomirov (ELCROS).
Church Councillor Raphael Quandt is ecumenical advisor of the Bavarian regional church and thus has insight into ecumenical processes. He comes from a genuinely Protestant region (Franconia). Dr Tikhomirov is director of the ELCROS theological seminary in St Petersburg and has experienced and shaped the reconstruction of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in the former Soviet Union.
