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 the winter semester of 2015/16 the Faculty of Protestant Theology welcomes Prof. Dr. Jörg Lauster to the faculty as Professor of Systematic Theology with an emphasis on dogmatics, philosophy of religion and ecumenism. Prof. Lauster was previously Professor of Systematic Theology and Philosophy of Religion at Philipps-Universität, Marburg. He comes to the faculty as the successor to Prof. em. Dr. Dr. h.c. Gunther Wenz.
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.
