Prospects and Challenges of Syriac-Orthodox Theology in Europe

March 13 to 15, 2019 in Paderborn

More and more Syriac-Orthodox Christians come to Europe and change the shape of Christianity there. They do not only bring with them one of the oldest Christian traditions with a rich liturgical and theological tradition, but also the language of Jesus Christ. The conference "Prospects and Challenges of Syriac-Orthodox Theology in Europe" aims at two goals: It wants to open up the possibility of a modern and European Syriac-Orthodox theology which combines fidelity to the own tradition with an open-minded response to modernity. Moreover, the conference wants to reflect the importance of Syriac-Orthodox traditions for the understanding of all three Abrahamic traditions. It wants to be a platform for research on Syriac-Orthodox Christianity by inviting some of the greatest scholars making research on this tradition. Moreover, it wants to encourage young Syriac-Orthodox Christians to articulate their theology in response to the challenges of modernity and of interfaith relations.

Building bridges between traditional thought and analytical philosophy - Rethinking Divine Attributes in Islam and Christianity. Summer School 2019: Omnipotence and Omniscience

August 12 to 16, 2019 in Paderborn

It has been a major question in traditional theological thinking how the Divine Attributes are to be understood. Recent debates in analytical philosophy have allowed new approaches that, however, are often not linked to those traditional debates. The project "Building bridges between traditional thought and analytical philosophy - Rethinking Divine Attributes in Islam and Christianity" aims at bringing the traditional theological discussions in touch with the modern analytical debate. Questions about the attributes of Omnipotence and Omniscience, Justice and Mercy, Simplicity and Divine Action will be explored in three consecutive Summer Schools. The first one, "Omnipotence and Omniscience", will take place in Paderborn in August 2019. For more information and registration, please click here.
