Dear friends,


We are happy to invite you to Prague to attend the annual meeting of the Association of Friends of PTF, which will take place on November 20-22, 2015. The theme of our meeting will be “Is the Reformation to blame for Secularization?”  



This theme has been chosen in regard to the anniversary of the death of the Bohemian reformer Jan Hus and the upcoming celebration of the Lutheran Reformation in 2017. In analyses about the legacy of the Reformation from several sides (Catholic theology, sociology, history) the argument is used that the secularization process of the 19th and 20th centuries is partly a consequence of the Reformation and its theologies about the church and about the individual.


During our meeting we would like to examine this hypothesis under the guidance of Prof. Klaus Fitschen, who teaches church history in Leipzig.


We have reserved accommodation in the university student dormitory (details including address of the dormitory will be sent to registered people directly). The accommodation costs, including breakfast, range between 350.00 and 400.00 CZK. The Association will contribute toward 50% of this cost.


We kindly ask you to inform us about your participation until November 9th, 2015

either electronically at or via postal mail at:
