We値l stand outside the Castle Church door in Wittenberg where Luther posted the 95 Theses in 1597, beginning the Protestant Reformation. We値l also be inspired by the life and witness of pastor and scholar Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who sought to lead the church to stand against Hitler. Also included are visits to historic places related to WW II and many other places of interest.

There will be lots of memory making, spiritual challenge and laughter along the way.

Sicily and Malta: Gems of the Mediterranean; G181002 View Brochure (PDF or DOC)
Visiting: Sicily and Malta
Dates: 10/7/18 - 10/20/18   Cost: $4900 G#: 181002

You are invited to join us in an exploration of two sister islands: Sicily and Malta. Their position in the center of the Mediterranean brought invasions by the Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Normans, Germans, Spanish and English, who affected architecture, cuisine and languages in different ways.

We will cross Sicily from Palermo to Catania, observing Norman and Arabic influences, Roman mosaics and Greek temples, situated in a stunning landscape skirted by the sea. In Malta we will discover an amazing sweep of history, from Neolithic temples to the extensive fortifications and buildings of the Knights of Malta and later the British. During World War II, Malta was the most heavily bombed place on earth, narrowly escaping occupation by the Axis. It was from Malta that Eisenhower launched the American invasion of Sicily. Through visits and discussions we will discover the importance of these islands and reflect on their similarities and differences.

This tour is sponsored by Luther College Alumni Relations and led by professors emeriti Ruth Caldwell and Uwe Rudolf. All are welcome to join them on this journey!
