March 28
09.30-13.30 h: Migration of ideas and books

Also, beginning March 4 (and running through July 19), an exhibition on “Calvinism in Germany and Europe” is being held in Germany. To mark Calvin’s 500th anniversary the German Historical Museum in Berlin and the Johannes a Lasco Library in Emden are presenting an exhibition which depicts the beginnings, spread and influence of Calvinism in Germany. The chronological framework extends from the Reformation movements of the late Middle Ages to the 20th century. The curators of the exhibition are Dr. Ansgar Reiss and Dr. Sabine Witt. Location: Deutsches Historisches Museum, Wechselausstellungsgebäude (Pei-Bau), Unter den Linden 2, Berlin. Opening hours: daily 10.00 – 18.00
