Consultation 2021 – Online: Towards a Renewed Theological Culture

The Collegium Emmaus hosted a consultation on the theme “Towards a Renewed Theological Culture” on the 29. – 31. January 2021 (this consultation was actually scheduled for March 2020, but had to be postponed because of the pandemic).

The aim of this consultation was to explore new (and at the same time old) ways of doing theology. A theology that combines intellectual rigor with lived spirituality, and ecclesial engagement: What are the new (or old) ways of doing theology that combine intellectual rigor, spirituality, and social engagement? What is the future of theology as an academic discipline? What is the role of personal and communal prayer for academic theology? What contribution (if any) does theology offer towards fostering a renewed academic culture?

Contributing to the consultation were members of the Collegium, national and international guests: Dr Walter Dürr, Prof. Dr Ralph Kunz (University of Zurich), Dr Matthew Croasmun (Yale Divinity School), Tit. Prof. Dr Gregor Emmenegger (University of Fribourg), Dr Graham Tomlin (St. Mellitus College London), Ass. Prof. Dr Sarah Stewart-Kroeker (University of Geneva), Prof. Dr Jennifer Herdt (Yale Divinity School), Prof. Dr Benjamin Schliesser (University of Berne), Prof. Dr Graham Ward (University of Oxford), Prof. Dr Anne Käfer (University of Münster), Prof. Dr Andrea Bieler (University of Basel), PD Dr Luca Baschera (University of Zürich), Prof. Dr Kevin Hector (University of Chicago), Dr Ryan McAnnally-Linz (Yale Divinity School), Prof. Dr John Behr (University of Aberdeen), Dr David Emerton (St. Mellitus College East Midlands).

Study-Week 2019 in Rüdlingen

In the Study-Week 2019, we explored new ways of doing theology, drawing from resources of the Christian tradition: A theology that combines intellectual rigor, a vital spirituality, and a lived engagement.

We have spent an extraordinary week together in the “Begegnungszentrum Rüdlingen” with plenty of discussions, theological reflection, hiking, river-rafting, praying, eating, wine tasting. A wonderfully ecumenical and inter-generational community on time.
