To the Ends of the Earth: The History of Lutheranism in Australia
This unit introduces students to key people, events, and doctrinal themes in the history of Lutheranism in Australia. Students will critically analyse and evaluate the Lutheran emigration to Australia, settlement, growth, schooling, early mission, persecution, union, and theological vision. In the context of this history, students will reflect on the issues currently facing the Lutheran Church of Australia. As part of this unit, students will engage in primary research on a local part of the story of Australian Lutheran history which is of personal interest to them.
