International Theological Conference, Warsaw 11.04-13.04.2018

Warsaw, 11.04-13.04.2018

Theology Between East and West

For the third time our faculty organises an international conference in Warsaw, which gathers scholars mostly from Central and Eastern Europe. It creates an opportunity to build the theological and spiritual bridges between Eastern and Western traditions of Christianity. This is why we want to devote this year’s conference to the theological reflection about the differences and similarities between catholic and orthodox theology. We want to explore not only the realm of dogmatic theology, but also areas of spirituality, philosophy, liturgy, sacred art, and the history of the Church. Therefore, we invite to our conference speakers who want to discuss the following questions in the aforementioned areas of expertise:

  • What is the essence of western or eastern theology/ spirituality/ philosophy/ liturgy/ sacred art/ point of view on history of the Church? What are the differences?
  • What can we learn from one another?
  • What are the challenges of today’s ecumenical dialogue between the Catholic and the Orthodox Church?
