As a part of the programme of the Commemorative Year of Reformation the German version of the exhibition “Soli Deo Gloria – 500 Years of Reformation in Hungary” was opened in Munich, in the cultural centre Haus des Deutschen Ostens (House of the German East), in cooperation with the Munich Consulate General of Hungary.

The speaker of the event was church historian Dr Zoltán Csepregi, professor and Head of Department from the Lutheran Theological University who gave a German language lecture on the Hungarian scope and social significance of Reformation. In this context, the professor talked about how the teachings and views of Martin Luther spread in Hungary. He concentrated on the 1520s and used the common man’s perspective to explain the reason why reformation spread. The lecture was illustrated by the exhibition itself, as it clarified the importance of Reformation in Hungary and its significance in preserving and unifying the nation for the German audience.

Welcome speeches were given by Consul General Gábor Tordai-Lejkó and Prof. Dr. Andreas Otto Weber, the Director of the House of the German East.
