Information sheet

Martin Luther

An Ecumenical Perspective
On October 31st 2016, Pope Francis and top representatives of the Lutheran World Federation have led the ecumenical commemoration ceremony in Lund, Sweden (place of foundation of the Lutheran World Federation) on the occasion of the 500th anniversary of Reformation. »Many Christians are rightly expecting that remembrance of 500 years of Reformation will bring us one step forward ecumenically to reaching the goal of unity. We must not disappoint those expectations.« With these words Walter Cardinal Kasper starts his essay on Martin Luther and coming from the German-born Cardinal, such words are a clear signal.

In this volume, the President Emeritus of the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of Christian Unity frees Luther from preconceived opinions of past and present Luther anniversaries: Luther, his world and his message are at first strangers in the contemporary time. The exposure of » Luther as a stranger« leads to an ecumenical surprise: »The reason, why Luther and his message are strangers to us, paradoxically points to his significance for ecumenical efforts today.« Kasper´s thesis develops and culminates into a committed plea, expressed in the last chapter´s headline: For an »ecumenism of mercy«.

This book derives from a highly respected discourse, held by the author at Humboldt University in Berlin in 2016.
