Pope Paul VI’s debut encyclical Ecclesiam Suam affirmed that ‘The Church must enter into dialogue with the world in which it lives’ (#65), and that ‘the dialogue which the Church of today must take up with a great renewal of fervour [...] must be readily conducted with all men of good will both inside and outside the Church’ (#93). It marks the true beginning of the past five decades of fruitful and challenging dialogue undertaken by the Catholic Church. This major international conference marks this anniversary, looking back at the past fifty years, and re-evaluating both the theory and practice of dialogue in the light of contemporary realities.

Inclusive Costs: £270 (early bird), £290 (standard), £310 (en-suite). We anticipate that bursaries will be available.
