Welcome to the Chair of Ecumenical Theology and Orthodox Christianity!

The Chair focuses on the study of Orthodox Christianity in its historical and theological diversity. The entire spectrum of Orthodox churches is taken into consideration, the so-called "Byzantine Orthodox Churches" as well as the "Oriental Orthodox Churches". The research takes place within a decidedly ecumenical horizon - Orthodox Christianity is not viewed in isolation, but in the context of encounters with other Christian denominations. Ecumenism in the past and present is the central point of reference.
