Religion and Reform
In commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, the annual Kripke Symposium will address the mutibility of religion
Although ostensiblity of divine inspiration, religions are not immutable; they have changed in significant ways due to historical, economic, social, and political circumstances and causes. Some changes have been intentional, some have been compelled on the religion and necessary for survival, and others have not even been noticable except from historical perspective. This symposium will address the many ways in which religion has changed, is changing, and perhaps needs to change, and their particular causes. Proposals addressing the topic from a broad range of disciplines and focusing on diverse religious traditions are encouraged.
The symposium will take place Thursday–Friday, February 15-16, in Harper Center 3023, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The schedule for the symposium will be posted around the beginning of the new year.
