The Treaty of Rome – 60 years on – why is it cause to celebrate?

60 years ago six European countries signed the Treaty of Rome – creating the European Economic Community (EEC) and the European Atomic Energy Community. It was a key moment, a little over ten years after the end of World War II. And it was the foundation of today’s EU and all its achievements. European unity is a political and economic success story.

500th anniversary of the Reformation

Five hundred years ago, on 31 October 1517, legend has it that theology professor Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg. The posting of these theses in Wittenberg marks the beginning of the Reformation. The far reaching theological, cultural and political consequences of the Reformation make its anniversary in 2017 not only a church affair, but a central global event in cultural history.
