Why was it Martin Luther who shaped the new faith and the new ethics? Martin Luther is one of the most influential figures in European history. His theses, catechism and church reform have not only formed the basis for the beliefs of millions of people, but also characterized modern Northern Europe's ethics, political organization and secular thinking. In this lecture, the lay president, former rector of the University of Oslo and professor of theology Inge Lønning will talk about Luther's role in the present and its significance in hindsight. He asks why Luther laid the foundation for the new church.
