For Reformation Day, on Monday, October 29, the Protestant Evangelical Alliance of Croatia, in cooperation with Biblijski institut, organized a lecture entitled, “From Gutenberg to Google: The Contribution of the Reformation to Contemporary Europe.” Our own Dr. Stanko Jambrek, professor of Church History, spoke at the Library, “Tin Ujevič,” in Zagreb. In his presentation, he emphasized that, during the Reformation, the recently invented printing press was used to make the Bible available to people in their own language. Likewise, he said that there is an opportunity before today's Christians to make use of Google as a tool through which the Gospel message can reach every person. He also pointed out that the modern values of contemporary Europe and western civilization are in many ways a product of the Reformation. After the lecture, our professor Danijel Berković presented his recently released book, "Biblijski hebrejsko-hrvatski rječnik" (Biblical Hebrew-Croatian Dictionary), which was published jointly by the Croatian Bible Society and Biblijski institut.
