The beginning of the Reformed tradition is often traced back to 1522 – exactly 500 years ago – when Ulrich Zwingli first made his protestant views known publicly (in an episode amusingly remembered as ‘the affair of the sausages’). Since then, the Reformed tradition has taken on diverse forms in various contexts across the world, including here in South Africa and the wider African continent.

 

While keeping global developments – also in the broader ecumenical world – in mind, this conference will explore local expressions and contributions of the Reformed tradition. This will be done by holding a mirror up to the tradition’s past and present in our context, but also by peering through the window towards its future possibilities, especially in view of the various challenges marking our society today.
