George Garbe, a retired physician and cardiologist, recently found the Unitarian Fellowship. Today he will share his thoughts and insights about how doctors think.
June 10 — The Edict of Torda
Guest Minister: Rev. Fulgence Ndagijijmana
The Edict of Torda was proclaimed in 1568 by King Sigismund of Romania and followed an earlier decree of religious tolerance in 1567. The Protestant Reformation has made significant gains in Europe, including the once largely Catholic Transylvania. The queen had been inspired by the teachings of her Italian physician, Giorgio Biandrata. In 1563 the Transylvanian court preacher is credited with saying “we need not think alike to love alike”.
Rev. Fulgence Ndagijimana will share his thoughts about the Edict of Torda and its importance today. Do we need to let go of some preconceptions?
