The Institute for Saint Anselm Studies will host the Sixth Saint Anselm Conference on April 20-22, 2017. The Conference theme is Saint Anselm, the Church, and the Reformers.

Marking the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, The Sixth Saint Anselm Conference welcomes papers on topics that were important to Anselm and the Reformers alike. Possible areas include issues in theology, such as Christ, redemption, free will and grace, the place of scripture in the Church, the nature of the Church, authority and reform in the Church, and also broader issues such as the value of reason, the reception of Anselm among the humanists, and the relations between Church and individual, Church and state authority, conscience and authority, conscience and civil law.
