EX Excursion: Rome as "locus theologicus"
EX 5

We will visit institutions and responsible officials to gain an insight in the emerging world church and discuss the theological implications before and after the meetings. The confrontation with the city and its art will bring closer the experience of a universal city (“La città”) continuously reinventing itself over the centuries, where all currently existing religious situations of the world can be met in one spot.

In the mornings we will visit institutions and have discussions based on the preparatory lecture courses of the winter term.
In the afternoons we will visit prominent sights of the History of Art and analyze their historical and theological significance.

Meetings and discussions with short presentations prepared by the students.

Written and oral.
