Institutul Teologic Penticostal din București vă invită la un eveniment intitulat-

Mulțumesc pe această cale Alexandrei Giula, pentru sprijinul acordat acestui eveniment.

The Society for Reformation Studies is organizing its 23rd Annual Conference in 2016, themed ‘The Bible in the Reformation’, 5-7 April 2016 at Westminster College in Cambridge, UK.

The publication of Erasmus’ Novum Instrumentum in 1516 marked a significant moment in the Christian humanist scholarship of the early sixteenth century. This revised Latin translation of the New Testament intended to correct the Vulgate, Erasmus’ accompanying edition of the Greek text and his commentaries, suggested new ways of reading the Biblical text and determining its meaning. The availability of a Greek text was to prove inspirational for the early reformers, and made it possible for Martin Luther and others to claim that authority could be derived sola Scriptura, thereby placing the Bible as the foundation and centre of Protestant Christianity.

Marking the 500th anniversary of the Novum Instrumentum, this conference explores the place of the Bible in the Reformation. What theological status did it have? How should the text be read and used? Which text was authoritative? What questions attended the various editions and translations of the Bible published down the decades of the Reformation?

We invite papers (25 minutes maximum) considering these questions from theological, textual and linguistic perspectives; exploring hermeneutical and exegetical issues; or examining the use of the Bible in worship, preaching and devotion.

Leading us in consideration of this theme will be

Hilmar Pabel (Vancouver)
Richard Rex (Cambridge)
Silvana Seidel Menchi (Pisa)
As ever, papers which reflect the current work of participants, regardless of their relevance to the theme, are welcome.

Invitation and Call for Papers

International Conference



12–15 November 2014

Sibiu, Romania


The idea of the real indwelling of the Holy Spirit in the Church and in the human person, stressed already in the New Testament, plays an important role in contemporary Christianity; it is especially explicit in Pentecostal churches but also in charismatic movements in many traditional churches. The emphasis is placed on the felt experience of the presence of the Spirit, with particular attention to certain charismas, connected to the event of Pentecost.

In contemporary culture much attention is given to individual perception and experience. This results within Christian churches in the question of many believers: „How can I experience the Christian message in my own life?” Pentecostal churches and charismatic movements are closely connected to this attitude, which seems to form the basis of their success. On the other hand, traditional churches treat this kind of experience with suspicion because they regard it as purely emotional and not in line with traditional church teaching. This does not mean however that the idea of personal experience of the Holy Spirit is absent from the teaching of traditional churches. Thus, the idea of the gaining of the Holy Spirit by each and every Christian during his/her life is central to the teaching of the Orthodox Church, although this is understood in a different way than in Pentecostal churches.

In the course of the Conference, it is intended to address the following questions:

How much room do traditional churches (Orthodox, Catholic and Protestant) give to personal (religious) experience and experiences of the Spirit?

How do they relate to charismatic movements within their own churches and to Pentecostal churches? How do they perceive each other?

What does this mean for the theological vision of the Holy Spirit? Is it possible to reconcile traditional church teaching about the Holy Spirit and theosis with the experience of the Spirit in Pentecostalism and charismatic movements?
