The Evangelical Lutheran Leipzig Mission is the successor organization of the Dresden Mission founded in 1836. The Leipzig Mission was moved to Leipzig in 1848.
The missiology emerged in the 18th century as an independent theological discipline. In taking up the concept of "Missio Dei", the mission and devotion of God to the people, the missiology of today deals with topics such as globalization, climate and food justice, ecumenical and interreligious questions, and political and economic issues. Today the Leipzig Mission works especially with the Faculty of Theology at the University of Leipzig, supporting graduate students and organizing joint symposia and seminars
