Short description of the Institution:

The Institute for Ecumenical Studies was founded in 1964 following the ecumenical inspiration of the Second Vatican Council. Members of different Christian traditions (Catholic, Lutheran, Reformed, Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, Old Catholic) work together in teaching, research and publications to promote reconciliation within the Church of Christ. Members of the Institute participate in ecumenical dialogue on national and international level and created a worldwide network of exchange and collaboration.
