Erasmus+ (deutsch)


What does "Erasmus" do on the homepage of the Lutheran Theological Seminary Oberursel (LThH)? Those who are familiar with theology know that there was no love lost between the humanist Erasmus of Rotterdam (about 1469-1536) and the reformer Martin Luther (1483-1546). More than that, they got literally right into a scrap with each other.

But apart from that, the importance of humanism and Erasmus for education in the European context is more than undisputed. That is probably why the EU programme to promote general and professional/vocational education, training, youth and sport in Europe is called Erasmus+. The programme is managed by the European Commission together with other organisations and is open to individuals and organisations. More information can be found here:




The Lutheran Theological Seminary Oberursel maintains various partnerships with universities abroad and has applied for Erasmus+ as well. Further information for interested students and universities will be available here as soon as decisions have been made.
