Found Online: Lutheran Church in Hungary

Interesting post on our Lutheran brothers and sisters in Hungary and their history found on the Witness, Mercy, Life Together blog.

The origins of the Lutheran Church in Hungary dates back to the Reformation with many pastors studying in Wittenberg in the 1520s and 1530s. Several of the Hungarian pastors who studied with Phillip Melanchthon started the first Lutheran school for children in 1559 (about the same time the Old Latin School in Wittenberg was built).
