On Friday 25 October, Brother Enzo Bianchi, founder of the Bose Monastery, will inaugurate 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 “The Encyclical Ut unum sint: Point of Arrival and Point of Departure”, will be held in the Minor Room 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 of the highest academic standard.

The “Tillard Chair” is dedicated to ecumenism and was founded in 2003 at the Angelicum in honour of the renowned French theologian and ecumenist Jean–Marie Tillard, OP (1927–2000).
