On Friday 14 February 2020, His Beatitude Sviatoslav Shevchuk, the Major Archbishop of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, will speak at the fifth lecture of the 2019–2020 cycle of public lectures of the “Tillard Chair”, dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the encyclical Ut unum sint.
The lecture, entitled "Ut unum sint: Relevance for Oriental Catholic Churches”, will be held in the Aula Magna of the Angelicum from 5.30–7.00 pm.
The cycle of lectures on “The Encyclical Ut unum sint: Between Prophecy and Realty. 25 Years After” has been jointly organized by the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity and the Institute of Ecumenical Studies of the Angelicum within the context of the 'Ut unum sint' course now available at the Institute. Delivered by distinguished ecumenists and professors of various Churches, the 'Ut unum sint' course provides ongoing formation in ecumenism.
The “Tillard Chair”, dedicated to ecumenism, was inaugurated by Cardinal Walter Kasper in 2003 at the Angelicum in honour of the renowned French theologian and ecumenist Jean–Marie Tillard, OP (1927–2000).
