Towards the end of the summer course, the focus moved on the impact of the Reformation beyond the empire. The Zurich Reformation was presented as one example. Presentations by Student Fellow Aaron Garza (Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary) directed attention to another manifestation of the Reformation: Anabaptism. His ‘Evaluation of Pilgram Marpeck’s Pro-Nicene Trinitarianism’ showed that the Anabaptist leader shared basic theological beliefs with the mainstream Reformation. Student Fellow John Mark Oduor (St Paul’s University, Kenya) explained how the Reformation is important for his systematic-theological research project ‘Towards a soteriological theology of food’. The Fellows engaged in an animated discussion about the theological significance of food and the possibilities of making Reformation history useful for contemporary discussions.
