Same goes for the Wittenberg form of Humanism: it, too, is inconceivable apart from the Reformation. The peculiar brand of Humanism that developed in Wittenberg was reformational Humanism, a Humanism deeply informed by the theological thought of Luther and Melanchthon, as we've had occasion to point out here at Renascentes Musae.
In celebration of the phenomenon of Wittenberg Humanism, Concordia Theological Seminary in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, is hosting a conference entitled "Lutheranism and the Classics." You can read more about it by clicking here. So mark your calendars for 1 and 2 October, 2010, and please join us as we examine, prod, explore, uncover, probe, and revel in the intellectual tradition of earliest Lutheranism.
