Fritzsche Oration

The Fritzsche Oration is an initiative of Lutheran Archives and ALC.

The oration highlights the contribution of theologians of the Church to the history of Australian Lutheranism. In the early 1840s Gotthard Fritzsche opened a small college in Lobethal SA to provide theological education for pastors and teachers, inspiring generations of theological training in Australia.
