Faculty of Protestant Theology

The Faculty of Protestant Theology at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) München was established in 1967. 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.
