Register for the web conference at info@ieg-mainz.de. You will receive a link to the web conference room in due time. In their series »Let's talk about Europe«, the Landeszentrale für politische Bildung Rheinland-Pfalz (LpB) and the Leibniz Institute of European History in Mainz (IEG) take a closer look at ecumenism in Europe on two evenings. Three ecumenism experts will discuss questions of dialogue between the Roman Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox churches in Europe. The series starts on March 18 with a thematically broad prelude: What differences exist from the perspective of theology and against the background of historical developments? Which rapprochements exist in Europe? What ecumenical positions are associated with the great representatives of these churches, including the former Bishop of Mainz, Karl Cardinal Lehmann? Rev. Dr. Dagmar Heller, Confessional Institute Bensheim Prof. Dr. Volker Leppin, Eberhard Karls University Tübingen Dr. Johannes Oeldemann, Johann-Adam-Möhler-Institute of Ecumenics Paderborn Moderation: Prof. Dr. Irene Dingel, Leibniz Institute of European History Mainz In a second round of discussions in early summer, the experts will address the current topic "Ecumenism: Flight and Migration - Theological Ethics and Political Expectations". The exact date will be communicated
