... Martin Luther in Sweden When describing Luther’s impact on Sweden through the centuries, a primary problem is to decide what sources there are for analyzing this. One obvious source of knowledge, that tells us specifically about the understanding of Luther and the Reformation at different times, is the Reformation jubilees—primarily those that were celebrated in memory of the birth of the Reformation on October 31, 1517 . In the evangelical world, jubilee celebrations have been held every hundredth year, starting in 1617 . (One could say that the...

... Martin Luther in Norway The Specific Profile of Norwegian Protestantism The story of Luther’s reception in Norway is one that can be told in quite different ways. Until 1814 , it was a story very closely interwoven with the story of Luther’s reception in Denmark, where the University of Copenhagen, the king in Copenhagen, and publishers in Copenhagen played central roles in deciding how Luther’s ideas should be communicated to Denmark and Norway. A specific Norwegian tradition for Luther’s reception slowly emerged in the decades after 1814 . One might...

In 1974 Eberhard Jüngel wrote, together with Paul Ricoeur, a long article about Metaphorische Wahrheit in a volume about metaphors and theology.
