Springfield, Ohio — Wittenberg University welcomes theologian David S. Yeago for a presentation at the Wittenberg Series-sponsored Kenneth H. Sauer Luther Symposium at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 20, in Bayley Auditorium in the Barbara Deer Kuss Science Center.

Yeago is the Michael C. Peeler Professor of Systematic Theology at the Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary in South Carolina, where he teaches courses on theology of the Christian life, early Christian biblical exegesis and theology, and the theology of Martin Luther.

Yeago’s dedication to his field extends well beyond the classroom. He has participated as member or consultant in ecumenical dialogues with the Moravian Church, the Orthodox Church and the Roman Catholic Church and has served as a consultant for the Lutheran-Roman Catholic Commission on Unity. With other colleagues at the seminary, he helped draft the “Faculty Position Paper on Spirituality and Spiritual Formation.”

He has published in a variety of journals, including Pro Ecclesia, Modern Theology, The St. Vladimir’s Theological Quarterly, Lutheran Forum and Nova et Vetera. His articles have addressed a wide range of issues, including ecumenism, Biblical hermeneutics and the theology of Martin Luther. His current research is focused on the theological interpretation of Scripture and the role of Scripture in Christian formation.

All Wittenberg Series events are free admission.

The Wittenberg Series annually brings distinguished lecturers and performing artists of national and international prominence to the Wittenberg campus and Springfield community.
