End: Friday, March 8, 2024 at 13:00 pm
Sankt Georgen Graduate School of Philosophy and Theology in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
Institute of Global Church and Mission (IWM)
in cooperation with:
the Chair for Medieval and Modern Church History at the Sankt Georgen Graduate School
and the Chair of Church History in the Department of Catholic Theology at the Goethe University Frankfurt am Main.
Contributions from current international research and insights into practical contexts illuminate the topic from different perspectives:
- How are women in mission portrayed in historical documents and what significance is attributed to them in mission history?
- What traces of women in the movement of Christianity through space and time can be discerned and how do these shape theological questions about a reflected understanding of mission?
- In what ways can mission history be adequately discussed today in light of postcolonial critiques regarding the intertwining of colonialism and mission?
- How do women religious from different countries reflect on their role in mission in the Catholic Church?
