The Episcopal Theological College of Pécs will host the 14th Congress of the European Society for Catholic Theology between August 30th and 2nd September 2023 in the historic city of Pécs in southern Hungary. Gusztáv Kovács, the vice-president of the society and organizer of the event is expecting about 200 participants from 25 countries at the opening ceremony on Wednesday.
The topic of the congress is EUROPE: Spiritual Resources for the Future, which gives the chance to theologians and other academics to reflect upon the past and current situation of Europe, and to unfold the future-oriented moments of the Judeo-Christian tradition for the continent.
