The fourth annual Conference of the Society for Reformation Studies will
be held at Westminster College, Cambridge, UK, on 2-4 April 1997. The
special theme for the forthcoming Conference is 'Philipp Melanchthon
1497-1560: His Life, Work and Influence'. Dr Sachiko Kusukawa, Fellow of
Christ's College Cambridge, is giving a keynote paper on this theme. It is
also hoped to invite a representative of Melanchthon scholarship in
Germany to give a keynote address. 

In addition to its special theme each year, the Society also encourages
attenders to offer papers in their chosen area of interest. Research
students are particularly invited to share the results of their work with

scholarship in all aspects - theology, spirituality and related
disciplines. The Conference will also visit a Cambridge library with
strong holdings of Reformation books and manuscripts.
