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.
In cooperation with the University Chapel, St. Markus, the young scholars working on the research initiative "FOR 1765" will hold a series of lectures during the 2015/16 winter semester. The program covers several areas of current debate concerning protestantism and recent history. (The lectures will be held in German.)
The Faculty of Protestant Theology at the University of Munich (LMU München) mourns the loss of Professor Dr. Dr. h.c. Ferdinand Hahn, Professor Emeritus of New Testament Theology, who passed away on the 28th of July at the age of 89.
DFG Project: I Enoch Text-critical Edition and Translation
The Chair of New Testament is pleased to announce that the DFG (German Research Council) has granted the financing of a major project to produce a new text-critical edition of I Enoch and its translation into German and English. I Enoch, a book that gathers traditions composed between the late 4th century BCE and the end of the 1st century CE, is preserved among Aramaic fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls; it is only, however, fully extant in Ge'ez (old Ethiopic) manuscripts. In the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church, it occupies an important place in the biblical tradition. Based on many Ge'ez manuscripts coming to light in recent years, this project is preparing a critical edition, the first to be published since that of R.H. Charles in 1906.
