On the occasion of 500 years of reformation, lecturers from theological universities in Africa and Asia have come to Germany in order to see the sites of reformation. The journey organized by the United Evangelical Mission (UEM) focusses on places in Eisenach, Eisleben, Wittenberg and Marburg where Martin Luther lived and worked. From May 14 to 23 the participants deal with the background and success of the reformation. The guests from Cameroon, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, Indonesia and the Philippines also discuss with German theologians on Martin Luther's impact on today's churches and societies in the world.
