Conference on Lutheranism & the Classics

I’ll be heading out to the seminary at Ft. Wayne, Indiana, for the conference on Lutheranism & the Classics October 1-2.  I’ll be giving a paper on Luther and the Liberal Arts.  If you are in the neighborhood or can come to the neighborhood, ome out for it!  For more information, go here: Concordia Theological Seminary – Lutheranism & the Classics.

    Looking forward to that conference. I’ve been registered for months. It’ll be a breath of fresh air to associate with people who know it isn’t just Presbyterians who can deal with classical education.

  • The “liberal arts”? Et tu, Veith?

  • Yes, tODD. “Liberal” as from the Latin liberalis meaning befitting a free human beings. It comes from the Greco-Roman custom of providing one kind of education for free citizens and a different kind of education for slaves. That is, developing people’s intellects vs. training slaves to contribute to the economy and doing what they are told (as in mainline education today).

  • I suppose I should’ve added an emoticon to the end of my comment (@3), then. 😉

    See, the joke being not only riffing on liberal as in “arts”, but also in politics, while also referencing a well known quote from a particular work of art, which also happens to be in Latin, which … oh, never mind.

    I’d like to find out more. Is there a website which specifically discusses a classical education for Lutherans?
