What do words like “founding” mean at a place like Augsburg? If, as a Lutheran institution, we believe in the concept of “semper reformanda” (always reforming), then shouldn’t we say that Augsburg has had multiple “foundings”—not only physically, but intellectually and theologically?
Augsburg history professor Phil Adamo will explore these questions in the 2018 Heritage Day Talk, offering examples from his new book, Hold Fast to What is Good: A History of Augsburg University in 10 Objects, written for the upcoming celebration of Augsburg’s 150th anniversary.
Please join us for this free event on Wednesday, October 24th from 7:00-8:30 pm in Hagfors Center 150. A reception will follow the presentation.
