The Good Life

Resonance in theology, in the Church and in society


The question of good life is one of the central questions of the human being. Theology has good reasons to take care of it too, because it is "for the life of the world" (Jn 6:51) that the eternal Word became flesh. We are thus convinced that theology and Christian faith can communicate fundamental perspectives on the question of good life and it is together that we want to seek ways towards a renewed theology and Church that create resonances in the world.


During the three days of this sixth edition of the study days for the theological and social renewal in June 2019, perspectives on the renewal of Theology, Church and Society will be presented and discussed. Many speakers from the academic, ecclesial and social sectors in Switzerland and abroad will participate. Let yourself be surprised by the themes and discussions we offer!

From Wednesday to Saturday,

12th - 15th june 2019,

with Miroslav Volf, Hartmut Rosa, Wim Wenders and many others.
