Acclaimed German writer, novelist, essayist, screenwriter and poet Martin Mosebach will attend a seminar on the topic of new developments in German literature, organized by Book City Institute in Tehran on February 7.

Spirituality and hope will be among the main topics discussed, according to the website of the institute

 In his book ‘The Heresy of Formlessness,’ Mosebach, 66, has sought to convince readers of the spiritual superiority of traditional wisdom. He talks about hopelessness of modern approach to liturgy.  

Mosebach believes that the church has lost much and gained nothing through the promulgation of the Novus Ordo Mass. He makes a plea for a return to the pre-Conciliar Latin rite, arguing against what he sees as “a jarring break in tradition.” 

Starting at 4:30 pm, the meeting will be held at Book City Cultural Center, located on Ahmad Qasir Street, north of Beheshti Street.

Mosebach is well known in the German speaking world for his brilliant, cutting edge novels and short stories. In 2002, he was awarded the Kleist Prize, an annual German literature award. In 2007, he received the prestigious Georg Büchner Prize, a literary award that, along with the Goethe Prize, is the most important event for German literature.
