Symposium: “Embracing Difference: The Tradition of Anglican Inclusiveness“

Organised with Hamburg University

Saturday, 22 September 2012 · 09:30 - 16:00

Symposium
Admission: free

The history of the Anglican Church is characterized by a continuous struggle for inclusiveness. In the early years of the Anglican Church this strive towards comprehensiveness was primarily due to the endeavour of establishing a national Church enabling as many subjects as possible to feel part of a united Church and its creed.

Taking this as theme the symposium sets out to explore the challenges of heterogeneity the Anglican Church has been confronted with in the past, is facing at present, and will have to negotiate in the future. Four contributors,  The Very Revd Dr John Arnold (who was one of our locums last year),  Canon Brian Mountford, Pastorin Britta Eger and Dr Walther Bindemann will analyze how the Anglican Church came and still comes to terms with internal and external differences: the cultural and social heterogeneity of its members as well as the relation to other.

The symposium has been conceived by Susanne Rupp, Professor for British Literature and Culture at the University of Hamburg, together with her colleague Dr Felix Sprang. Further details see flyer
