À propos de l'événement
The Luxembourg School of Religion & Society
A short presentation
The LSRS is an institution of higher education and research founded in 2015. It focuses on the relationship between religion and society as an ongoing, tense, complex, and transformative process of dialogue and mutual enrichment. In other words: the conjunction “and” in the School’s name is its theme and program.
Its foundational questions are: “How can one be(come) a religious person in our pluralist postmodern society?”, and “How can religions make a contribution to contemporary ethical, social, and political challenges in a globalized world?”.
As a theological institution, it involves religious communities in the elaboration of possible answers. It develops its research and teaching by bringing into dialogue the religious heritage, i.e., sources, rites, traditions, on one hand, and contemporary life experience, on the other hand, referring to philosophy, humanities, and natural sciences as hermeneutical tools.
