upcoming events

The Collegium Emmaus is committed to four annual joint events and research activities: A colloquium in January, a consultation in spring, the Study Days in Fribourg and a study week.

Colloquium 2020

Theological Reflections on Prayer

 

On the 27th of January 2020, CE will meet in Zürich for our annual Colloquium.

 

The aim of this Colloquium is to encourage the Fellows of CE to write essayistic texts that relate their field of research with «prayer» (in the broadest possible meaning of the term).

 

We will critically discuss these texts together, working towards making their academic theological content accessible to and palatable for a wider audience in the Church and society.

Consultation 2020

Towards a new Theological Culture

 

The research program of the Collegium Emmaus, entitled «God and the Good Life: Theology, Community and the Common Good», hosts a consultation on the 20.–21. March 2020. The aim of these consultations is 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.

 

Our consultations seek to foster dialogue and friendship with researchers from all over the world who are engaged in projects we believe to be heading in a similar direction as «God and the Good Life.»

 

This Consultation will focus on the following questions:

  • 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?

 

Format. All the members of the Collegium read the papers in advance. The invited researchers will deliver a concise summary of their paper (15min). Two Members of the Collegium or associated researchers will respond to this paper with a written statement (15min/each), which is followed by a discussion (75 min/presentation).

Study-Days 2020

«WACHET UND BETET»

Spiritualität, Mystik und Gebet in Zeiten politischer Unruhe

 

«Wachet und betet» (Mk 14,38) Jesus bittet die Jünger um Beistand und sie schlafen. Im Garten Gethsemane wacht und betet Jesus und ringt mit Gott. Er spricht die Worte, die er seinen Jüngern lehrte: «Nicht, was ich will, sondern was du willst!» (Mk 14,35). Was bedeutet Jesu Beten für unser Beten? Wir spüren seiner Tiefe nach und fragen nach der Substanz christlicher Spiritualität, der Mystik und des Gebets für unserer Zeit.

 

An den siebten Studientagen zur theologischen und gesellschaftlichen Erneuerung vom 17.– 19. Juni 2020 werden an drei Tagen Perspektiven zur Erneuerung von Theologie, Kirche und Gesellschaft präsentiert und diskutiert. Viele bedeutende Vertreterinnen und Vertreter aus Kirche, Akademie und Gesellschaft aus dem In- und Ausland sind daran beteiligt. Lassen Sie sich von den Vorträgen und Vertiefungsseminaren überraschen und begeistern.

 

Der offizielle Prospekt sowie detaillierte Informationen zum Programm und zur Anmeldung folgen im Herbst / Winter 2019.

Study-Week 2020

The annual Study-Week will be in Rüdlingen on the 10.–14. of August 2020.
