More about luther in the country

The program for the next six months of the CHW local group in weismain is very interesting. The events begin on saturday, 23. September, at 4 p.M. In buchau near weismain in the st.-michaelskirche. The lecture of gunter dippold from lichtenfels deals with "reformation and counter-reformation" at the obermain and tries to make the reformation understandable from the late medieval piety.
The lecture will also focus on the monastery of bamberg, which remained catholic. The subjects, of course, largely turned to lutheranism. Protestant teachers often worked in cities, and the majority of burgers’ sons studied at protestant universities.
It was not until the counter-reformation in the 1590s that catholic subjects were again created across the board. The fact that this lecture is taking place in buchau has to do with the fact that a special situation prevailed there as well.

"Luther looked in the mouth"

On friday, 6. October, 7 p.M., it’s all about the reformer martin luther again in the christuskirche in weismain. The lecture by ralf georg czapla "looking the people in the mouth – luther and the german language" will certainly loosen up a bit. "When we put our light under the bushel" or of the "wolf in sheep’s clothing let’s talk, let’s do it with the words of the reformer. The background is that luther’s bible translation should be in clear and understandable language. Czapla presents luther as a linguistic victim. His technique of conceptualization is explained with selected examples, before today’s everyday language from lutheran heritage is taken up. The celts are also a major historical topic in the district of lichtenfels. In the lecture of gunter wolf on friday, 3. November, at 7 pm in the schonbornsaal in weismain, the topic will be taken up. "Ptolemaus and the end of the celts in northern bavaria" the lecture is titled. The famous ancient greek scientist ptolemaus wrote in his "handbook of geography" about the history of the world a place "menosgada erwahnt. Whether this was located on the staffelberg or whether it was a ford over the main near hallstadt, wolf will explain.
A lecture by tanja roppelt on thursday, 23. November, at 7 p.M. At the "alte post" inn in weismain has a very current topic: "the wolf – from the bad wolf to the celebrated immigrant – the image change of a wild animal". In the past it was persecuted and almost exterminated, today it is an example of successful species protection.
Hardly any other animal has moved people as much as the ancestor of our domestic dogs. In the lecture, the history of this fascinating wild animal in germany up to his differently received return is worked through.
The first lecture of 2018 is again dedicated to martin luther: on friday, 16. February at 7 p.M. Lecture on "martin luthers in cinema and television ralf georg czapla in the weismain christus church.
Was luther a berserker before the lord or a heroic figure, as is often shown in films?? The focus of the presentation was the staging of the reichstag of worms, where luther stood before emperor karl V in 1521. Justified his doctrine and refused to recant: "here i stand, i can do no other." Excerpts from restored versions accompany the lecture.

Catholic phanomenon

With the "phenomenon of pilgrimage annette schafer is working on the 16. Marz in the weismain schonbornsaal at 7 pm. Pilgrimages are an integral part of the annual program of most catholic parishes.
But where does this tradition come from?? Why do people go to holy places, and are there pilgrimages in other religions as well?? Questions about questions, which are illuminated in this lecture and the "phenomenon of pilgrimage" from a historical and folkloristic point of view. The series of lectures will be concluded in the next half-year with another historical look at the homeland on friday, 13. April, at 19 in the schonbornsaal in the weismainer kastenhof. Timo seregely lectures on the settlement and landscape history of the low mountain range south of weismain. Seregely wants to prove that in the period of 2500 years people not only buried their dead in the high plains, but also built villages as in the valleys. "Even if the prevailing doctrine is (still) different: on the high flat saben not the poorest of the poor", seregely is convinced.
