Summer School in Old Catholic Theology in Utrecht

From 3 July onwards, the classic ‘Old Catholic Theology in its Ecumenical Context’ is taught and offers you an inspiring, week-long introduction to Old Catholic theology, history, and spirituality. The course has enriched its participants for nearly a decade now!

A week later, the advanced course ‘The Early Church as Ideal: Old Catholic Theology beyond the Basics’ is scheduled from 10-16 July. This course was premiered to much acclaim in 2021 and offers the opportunity for more advanced studies in Old Catholicism.

Both courses of course include excursions to the treasures of the medieval city of Utrecht and its wealth of religious history. Also, they can be booked as a two-week package, entitled ‘Old Catholic Theology: The Early Church as Charism and Challenge’ (which will also give you a discount).
