In Lund, Sweden (2016), Lutherans and Catholics commemorated the  500th  Anniversary of the beginning of the Reformation. In this session, we will explore the reasons for an ecumenical commemoration of the Reformation, what such a commemoration signifies for us today, and what it means for the Lutheran-Catholic Dialogue and the wider ecumenical consensus based on The Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification.

Professor Lange, an ordained ELCA pastor, has written extensively on topics in liturgical theology and ecumenism. He was a brother of the Taize Ecumenical Community for 20 years. He is the North American Lutheran representative on the International Joint Lutheran-Catholic Dialogue Commission and the primary author of The Common Prayer for the Joint Catholic-Lutheran Commemoration of the 500 Years of Reformation.
