The publication, (500 years of the Reform. A matter for Latin America) was edited by Professor Markus D. Meier, of the Constitutional Law Department.

The Reform – together with the “discovery” of America – means, for many historians, the end of the Middle Ages and the beginning of modern times. The innovations of the time in the fields of theology, philosophy, education, and society are explained in the various contributions to this anthology, for the countries that remained faithful to the old doctrine as well as for those who accepted the new one. Especially, the difference between the Protestant North and the Catholic South of our dual American continent, thus, appears in a new perspective.

The event will be attended by representatives of the Bogotá Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany. Also attending are professors Markus D. Meier (Externado de Colombia University), Loida Sardiñas Iglesias (Javeriana University), William Mauricio Beltrán Cely, (Universidad Nacional de Colombia), and Sergio Alejandro Fernández Parra (Externado de Colombia University).

A glass of wine will be offered at the conclusion.
