Forthcoming
 

  • (06.03.2019 | Bologna) Participation in the conference: EUARE 2019 (European Academy of Religion).
    Section: Author Meets Critique Approval (Discussion of the book Radix Matrix: Community Belonging and the Ecclesial Form of Universalistic Communitarism).
    Speakers: Teresa Bartolomei and Luísa Almendra | CITER; Beppe Tognon e Alberto Anelli | LUMSA - Rome, Italy) (Language: Italian and English)
    If we recognize that the social function of community belonging is inclusion, we will have to reformulate it as a normative principle that scrutinizes the legitimacy of the foundational values of particular historical communities on the basis of their coherence with their basic social function. Different perspectives (exegetic-theological, philosophic-theoretical and historic-critical) are summoned in this debate to verify this hypothesis and the interdependence between the ethic-juridical notion of citizenship and the historic-theological notion of ecclesiality established in the bosom of Christianity, as two normative paradigms of community belonging.

  • (10.-11.04.2019 | Lisbon) Open Lecture: «Women and the Church: Unfinished Business of Vatican II»
    by Phyllis Zagano (Senior Research Associate-in-Residence and Adjunct Professor of Religion at Hofstra University); org. Luisa Almendra (Language: English)
    This lecture will explore how the hope regarding women that marked the closing of Vatican II has faded in the subsequent years but can nowadays be reactivated mainly by the possibility to restore the female diaconate in order to allow women greater formal and official participation in the Church.

  • (04.06.2019 | Lisbon) Open Lecture: «Women, Church and Journalism. Communication as a new frontier»
    by Fausta Speranza; org. Teresa Bartolomei | CITER - Istituto Italiano di Cultura Lisbona (Language: English)
    The way of communicating it turns information into knowledge and social intervention. There can, therefore, be no neutral communication, but only a critical interpretation of the contents in relation to the promotion of certain social goods. The ‘truth' of communication is, therefore, the result of the ‘truth of information' (no fake-news!) and of its interpretation in the light of the requirements of properly recognized common goods. The status of women in society and in the Church today becomes an essential criterion for redefining this notion of public good more fairly and consistently than in the past. The communication finds in this necessary enlargement a new and innovative frontier.

  • (18.06.2019 | Lisbon) Open Lecture: «Caring for life: bioethics and the Feminine»
    by Luisella Battaglia; org. Teresa Bartolomei | CITER - Istituto Italiano di Cultura Lisbona (Language: English)
    Many bioethical issues are directly relevant to the gender perspective involved in their discussion and solution. Words such as generation, gestation, breastfeeding, do not clearly refer to pure biological facts, but today increasingly involve technical possibilities, social and individual options, economic strategies, cultural and axiological orientations in which the role assigned to the feminine is extremely significant. Today, science, ethics, politics and religion are crossed in the notion of feminine in an unprecedented and challenging way, in an interdependence that must be discussed, explored, reflected, conjugating fidelity to the truth of tradition, unconditional respect for human dignity, and prophetic openness the new.

  • (Fall 2019 | Lisbon) International Colloquium: «Women and Religion. The difference that integrates»
    org. Luisa Almendra e Teresa Bartolomei (CITER) - Lisbon (Language: English)
    Is religion a factor of promotion or, on the contrary, of discrimination and possibly even of oppression of women? This question is liable to a range of very different, possibly opposing responses, and indeed is still the subject of a strongly polarized debate. The colloquium intends to address the issue in a constructive and dialogical approach, with an inter-religious, interdisciplinary and interprofessional profile. Only by putting together skills, experiences, traditions that are often distant, will it be possible to elaborate not only consistent diagnoses but effective solutions to improve the social, cultural and religious status of women.

Past Activities

  • (22.01.2019 | Lisbon) Open lecture: «Science of Religion and Theology in the Academy - Conflicts and Possible Solutions»
    by Professor Jens Schlieter (University of Bern), org. Steffen Dix
    The lecture explores the disciplinary differences between theology and the science of religion. It has been suggested that these differences can be found in methodological aspects. However, in this lecture will be argued that methodological differences are less significant compared to the rather far-reaching differences of the respective ‘cognitive interests'.

  • (05.11.2018 | Lisbon) Open seminar: «Rethinking humanism on the horizon of multicultural and multireligious identities» 
    by Professor Enzo Pace (University of Padua) and Professor Luca Diotallevi (University of Rome Tré)
    How justified is the contrast between a West which, starting from its classical and Judeo-Christian matrices, sees itself the bastion of a universalist view of man, focused on the defense of democracy and human rights, and an Islamic tradition focused primarily on the defense of the historical rights of communities, with their cultural and religious identities? Is this cleavage merely an ideological and polemical cliché of a political nature or an evidence based on irreconcilable anthropological models? Is, therefore, the idea of an "Islamic humanism" nonsensical or a fruitful possibility of extending a reductively western notion of humanism? These questions are directly linked to the reflection on the consequences that the decline of the monopoly of Christianity in Western societies can have on democracy.

  • (02.11.2018 | Porto) International colloquium: «Identidades e Alteridades Religiosas em Portugal: formas, modos e diálogo numa sociedade pós-secular»
    The presence of religion in the public space is subject to continuous transformations and has been designated as a post-secular era (Habermas, 2009), indicating that many European countries are challenged to deal with the constant existence of religious communities in increasingly secularized environments. While preserving a strong religious homogeneity, Portugal also embodies the new trends that will be the main topic of the international colloquium Identidades e Alteridades Religiosas em Portugal: formas, modos e diálogo numa sociedade pós-secular, co-organized by CITER.

  • (24.-25.11.2017 | Lisbon) International conference: «Movement as Immobility: A Conference on Film and Christianity» 
    In Simone Weil's First and Last Notebooks we find a note that describes the sea as «a movement within immobility», the «Image of primal matter», which leads this Christian philosopher to see music also as a movement that «takes possession of all our soul-and this movement is nothing but immobility». Perhaps this is an even more fitting description of film, with its images in motion. Its movements can reconnect us with the movements of the world, those motions in which a mysterious sense of order, what Weil calls immobility, arises.This conference aims at examining the connections between film and Christianity focusing on such aesthetic aspects that, while not rejecting film representations of religious subjects, give primacy to film style and film experience. The event is organized by CEC - Centre for Comparative Studies of the University of Lisbon (as part of the research project «Cinema and the World: Studies on Space and Cinema»), IFILNOVA - Nova Institute of Philosophy of the New University of Lisbon, CECC - Research Centre for Communication and Culture and CITER - Research Center for Theology and Religion Studies of the Catholic University of Portugal.

  • (19.10.2017 | Lisbon) Open lecture: «Theology and its Relationship with Religious Studies: boundaries, assimilations, incursions»
    by Friedrich Wilhelm Graf (University of Munich)
    Although it is largely acknowledged by most academics that there is a clear distinction between theology and religious studies, the relationship between these two disciplines is a complex one. While theology is commonly thinking about religion from an internal perspective, religious studies seeks to study the cultural effects of belief and religious behaviour from outside. Starting with a brief overview about the history and origins of religious studies, the principal aim of this lecture is a systematic reflection on contemporary questions in what different ways our knowledge in relation to religion can be shaped.

  • (18.10.2017 | Lisbon) Open lecture: «The politicization of religion of Islam to an Islamism» 
    by Professor Bassam Tibi (University of Göttingen)
    Some observers contend that Islamism is a western notion imposed on Muslims in a western attitude of islamophobia. This is wrong. In reality it is a fact that the notion Islamism (al-islamyyia) was first coined by the founder of the first Islamist movement in history, the Muslim Brotherhood, Hassan al-Banna. His definition of Islamism (din wa daula) as a doctrine of the unity of a state order based on Shari'a and religious belief. The notion of Islamism pertains to the politicization of Islam in a pursuit to move it from spirituality and religious belief to politics. This happens in an effort at returning religion to state politics paired with the claim to establish an Islamic Sharia state.

  • (04.10.2017 | Lisbon) Open seminar: Ernest Goetsch «Agricultura sintrópica»
    Goetsch's work in Latin America on models of agroforestry has led to conversion of large tracts of degraded land into productive and diverse agroforests. He has developed a new technique of rapid recovery of poor soils by imitating existing patterns in nature in which carefully selected species of plants - a consortium of species - are placed at a given spacing and orientation, introduced in a predetermined sequence, and are heavily pruned during their growth period at regular intervals.

  • (30.05.2017 | Lisbon) Open seminar: «The Priest in Contemporary Literature»
    With the participation of Leonor Xavier, João Tordo, Pedro Mexia and José Tolentino Mendonça.
    Contemporary literature shows that the figure of the priest, even with all the changing perceptions, continues to arouse curiosity, debate and thought. As a character, it is perhaps less consensual than in other times and certainly less iconic within the social and power dynamics. However, the fact that his representation has not completely escaped the mutations and dilemmas of modernity allows us to deconstruct the reduction of the figure of the priest to a habitus, immune to time or history, illuminating its existence under new angles. Literature gives us to listen to a figure traditionally associated with discursive production, but we rarely hear in the discourse itself.

  • (25.05.2017 | Lisboa) Open lecture: «Aesthetics of Religion: what it is, and what it is good for»,
    by Prof. Alexandra Grieser (Trinity College Dublin) 
    Studying religion has long been dominated by focussing on texts, doctrines and beliefs. However, to get a full picture of the power of religious "ways of worldmaking" (N. Goodman) it is important to understand that, to a large extent, this power builds on aesthetic forms - images and imagination, artefacts and architecture and body practices that design experiences of other-than-everyday realities. In the study of culture, several approaches have responded to this insight: visual, spatial and material culture, media studies, the anthropology of the senses and cognitive psychology as well.
