Faculty of Protestant Theology

The Faculty of Protestant Theology at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) München was established in 1968.  Since its foundation, the faculty has become one of the strongest research-based faculties of theology in the German-speaking world, with extensive international influence.


The University Chapel Services in the 2016 summer semester are themed around the topic of 'fleeing from'. Follow the link to read the sermons after each service. (Please note that all services and sermons are in German.) more

The Research Unit 1765, which is an inter-disciplinary study of the effects and evolution of protestantism within the Federal Republic of Germany, has been awarded a further grant to fund another three years of research. more

A group of students from Prof. Harry Oelke's Church History Seminar, 'Protestantism in Munich' have been awarded the LMU Prize for excellent scholarship for their project entitled 'Maxvorstadt - seen through the eyes of Protestantism'. The project studied the history of protestantism and its effects on the neighborhood of Maxvorstadt. The resulting exhibit was on display in the UBahn Gallery from December 16, 2013 to February 28, 2014. The prize will be awarded on December 3, 2015 in the Senatsaal of the university. more
