(Altenburger Religionsgespräch). Held October 1568–March 1569 at Altenburg, Ger., bet. Wittenberg theologians (P. Eber,* C. Cruciger* the Younger, A. Praetorius,* H. Moller* v. Hirsch, and others) and Jena theologians (J. Wigand,* J. F. Cölestin,* C. Irenaeus,* T. Kirchner,* B. Rosinus,* and others). The Philippists (Wittenberg) defended the AC of 1540. Subject discussed: justification, free will, and adiaphora. The colloquy led to increased bitterness and no constructive results. See also Synergistic Controversy.
