(Activate youtube subtitles for English). Watch the reactions of mayor Antonio Muñoz and evangelical representatives at the event held in the Sourthern Spanish city on 13 April.
The Mayor of Seville received the Spanish news website Protestante Digital prize, which celebrates coexistence. A hundred people attended an emotional event.
The award goes in its fourteenth edition to the Seville City Council. The city promotes a touristic route of Protestant history and has named several streets after Evangelical women.
The Unamuno Prize was given to philosopher and university professor José Luis Villacañas, for “his brave defense of the memory of Protestantism as an integral part of the history of Spain”.
Since 2006, news website Protestante Digital gives the award to non-Protestant Spaniards who work for religious freedom and coexistence.
The Unamuno prize was awarded to writer and academic Antonio Muñoz Molina, for “his appreciation to the so-called ‘Bear Bible’.”
The Unamuno prize was awarded to journalist Jose Maria Calviño, for propelling the first evangelical program in the Spanish public broadcasting system. “I only did what was fair”, he said.
It is the 10th edition of the Unamuno Prize, created to honour a person or an institution that, not being Protestant, defends freedom of religion and interacts with the evangelical churches.
I wonder if there is maybe a legacy in that blank verse that was Unamuno’s life, a legacy that we, Christians following Jesus in Spain, should take.
Since 2006, Protestante Digital has given this award to honour a person or an institution that, not being Protestant, defends freedom of religion and evangelical culture.
