Sixth “Tillard Chair” lecture on the encyclical “Ut unum sint”


27 Feb 2020

On Friday 20 March 2020 Brother Alois, Prior of the Taizé Community, will hold the sixth lecture in 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: nouveaux horizons, nouvelles générations”, 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 Reality. 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” at the Angelicum  was inaugurated by Cardinal Walter Kasper in 2003 in honour of the renowned French theologian and ecumenist Jean–Marie Tillard, OP (1927–2000).
