Institute for Luther Studies

The Institute for Luther Studies serves the Seminary as the center that promotes in-depth study of Luther and interdisciplinary Reformation scholarship with inclusive, ecumenical, and global perspectives. Established in 1970, the Institute seeks to support both scholarship and ministry, responding to issues facing Lutherans today. Its original purpose of  “critical reassessment of Luther and his heritage in terms of their significance for modern ecumenical Christianity” is enhanced by renewed focus on supportive interdisciplinary scholarship in the field. The Rev. Dr. Kirsi Stjerna, Professor of Reformation Church History at Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg, directs the Institute.  

The Institute for Luther Studies sponsors the annual Luther Colloquy.
