Events of the Eugen Biser Foundation
The Foundation intermittently organises public lectures and discussions in Munich’s Literary House and occasionally at the Ludwig Maximilian’s University, the Bavarian Academy of Sciences or in premises provided by generous sponsors, such as Thuga AG, the bankers Reuschel & Co and the Bavarian Landesbank in Munich.
The topics debated on these evenings are agreed between Eugen Biser and his colleagues on the Foundation’s Council and Trustees, along with guests from the spheres of science, politics, economics, society or religion. The themes are either theological or philosophical in nature, and chime with the tenets of the Foundations’s work. Because they address social questions of public interest, they attract enthusiastic audiences.
The Foundation hopes this tradition of public lectures will attract an informed audience to take part in its scholarly work, conscious that many other events, such as expert discussions, inter-religious symposia or work on publications, are generally composed of experts. Thus, along with focussing attention on Biser’s theology, and promoting ecumenism and dialogue with the religions, the Foundation also seeks out contact with non-believers. This dialogue, from the very roots and with the responsibility of Christianity, knows no limits and is of great importance, particularly to peace among the peoples.
