Assissi 2012: Where we dwell in common

Assisi 2012:

‘Where We Dwell in Common’

Pathways for Dialogue in the 21st Century


An Ecumenical Gathering organised by

The Ecclesiological Investigations
International Research Network

17th – 20th April 2012


Domus Pacis, Assisi, Italy

The Program for our gathering in broad general outline will be as follows:

Day 1:  ‘Thinking Outside the Ecumenical Box’: The Quest for Dialogue in the
Twenty-First Century

Day 2: What Remains Divisive?

Day 3: Where We Dwell in Common

Day 4: Re-energising the Ecumenical Cause

Following the Full Plenary Sessions from Day 2 onwards, our discussions, conversations
and reflections for each day will be divided into three thematic strands:

 Three Thematic Strands

A.    Intra/Inter-Church Issues

B.    Inter-faith Issues

C.    Faith and World/Culture

In the early evenings, prior to dinner, we will also be organizing more informal
discussions, ‘presentations’ and interactive conversations, based around two
further broad thematic clusters:

‘Food for Ecumenical Thought’

D.    Historical Perspectives

E.    Global and Context-specific Perspectives
