Center for Spiritual Capital co-sponsors Protestant Reformation anniversary event

April 12, 2013

Nicholas Capaldi, Ph.D., Legendre-Soule Distinguished Chair in Business Ethics

The Center for Spiritual Capital in the College of Business at Loyola University New Orleans is co-sponsoring the Reformation Quincentennial Conference April 25-26 at Louisiana State University. It explores the upcoming 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.

The conference brings together participants from a variety of denominations, including Roman Catholics, Protestants, Orthodox Catholics and Evangelicals. Registration is open to the public and available online.

“The center operates with the belief that the United States’ ability to build its great civilization is directly linked to the country’s Judeo-Christian heritage. That heritage has eroded in recent years and needs to be reaffirmed,” said Nicholas Capaldi, Ph.D., founder and director of the Center for Spiritual Capital. “Spiritual capital—that aspect of social capital linked with religion and spirituality—is a means of spurring entrepreneurial innovation and providing an ethical framework in which to ground business practices.”

Other conference participants include LSU professor and Director of the Voegelin Institute Ellis Sandoz, Ph.D., professor of church history at the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary Lloyd Harsch, Ph.D., founder of the National Black Home Educators Joyce Burges and Dave Wardell, Ph.D., founder of Christian men’s conference, Promise Keepers.

The Reformation Quincentennial Conference and R500 are projects of the U.S. Leadership Foundation.
