CONF: Continental Congress of Theology

CONF: Continental Congress of Theology

A year before the Catholic World Youth Day in Rio de Janeiro - and on occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council and the fortieth (actually forty-first) anniversary of the publication of Gustavo Gutiérrez's book, "A Theology of Liberation" -, Jesuits in Brazil will be holding a Continental Congress of Theology, taking place from 8-11 October 2012 at the University of the Sinos Valley (Unisinos) in São Leopoldo.

Many prominent liberation theologians (including Gutiérrez, Leonardo Boff, and Jon Sobrino) are expected to attend this event, which is supported by theological societies from all over Latin America and the Caribbean and, strangely for a conference promoting liberation theology, even a Pontifical University.

Various regional meetings will be held in preparation.

While the conference website is currently only available in Portuguese, Spanish and English pages should be added shortly.

Registration will open in March 2012.
