The Neo-Calvinism Research Institute at Theological University Kampen kindly invites you to the international Herman Bavinck Centennial Congress on Thursday 11 and Friday 12 November 2021, in the Nieuwe Kerk, Broederweg 34, Kampen.
One hundred years after his death, the ideas of the Dutch theologian Herman Bavinck (1854-1921) are becoming increasingly popular among scholars from different parts of the world. During the 20th century he was relatively unknown outside of the Netherlands, standing in the shadow of the famous theologian and politician Abraham Kuyper with whom Bavinck was closely connected. In the last decades, scholars from the USA to Korea and from Russia to South-Africa started to study Bavinck, and his writings are being more and more translated into different languages and interpreted within various contexts.
Congress attendance is free, and includes lunches, coffee/tea, and a reception. Participants have to register before 5 November 2021 at https://www.tukampen.nl/aanmelden-congres/. On the days of the congress entry to the Nieuwe Kerk is allowed only by presenting your ID and your corona admission ticket.

Religion deeply influences how we live and think. The Neo-Calvinism Research Institute (NRI) at Theological University Kampen examines how this relation takes shape and develops globally over time in the tradition of Neo-Calvinism.
To conduct academic research in relation to this tradition, we promote, support, supervise and coordinate the work of researchers, offer education on neo-Calvinism, organize conferences and expert meetings, facilitate publication of research, and present a collection of sources from representatives of Neo-Calvinism.
