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.


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

At the annual international conference of the Bonhoeffer Society, PD Dr. Tim Lorentzen was awarded the Bonhoeffer Research Prize for his book, ‚Bonhoeffers Widerstand im Gedächtnis der Nachwelt (1945-2006)‘ (‚Bonhoeffer’s Resistance in the Memory of Posterity (1945-2006)‘). The Bonhoeffer Society paid tribute to the outstanding scholarly achievement of his work, which displays the richness of Bonhoeffer's theology for contemporary contexts and problems. The Gütersloh publishing house has donated prize money to the recipients of the award. more
