CFP: The Kuyper Centennial Congress: Secularism and Spirituality (I)

One hundred years after the death of Abraham Kuyper his legacy still is a source of inspiration in many fields. Kuyper was a scholar, a politician, a journalist, and a religious leader who managed to keep all these aspects of his life together and was sensitive to the changing context in which he lived, especially to the rise of secular modernity. Calvin Theological Seminary, Calvin University, the Theological University of Kampen, and the VU Amsterdam, where various faculties and research centers pay attention to Kuyper and his legacy, co-organize this congress on ‘Secularism and Spirituality’. They invite interested scholars to send proposals for a paper presentation related to one of the fields listed above. - See also the second conference in Amsterdam, November 19-20, 2020.
