Gathered in My Name: Ecumenism and the World Church

DePaul University

April 28-30, 2017

In 1517, Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the church door in Wittenberg, Germany. This April—500 years later—here in Chicago, speakers from places as diverse as India, Nigeria, Brazil, Chile, and Sri Lanka gather to address the lingering repercussions of the Reformation in the global South—Asia, Africa, and Latin America—as well as the efforts there to bridge ecclesial divides.
