This webinar will mark the publication of the first volume of a three-volume history of ecumenism, in which scholars across continents and disciplines explore the role of individuals and groups, assemblies, documents and programmes, and theologies and practices in the history of ecumenism and the ecumenical movement. The project is directed by Alberto Melloni and edited by Luca Ferracci of the Fondazione per le scienze religiose (FSCIRE), Bologna.
This first volume traces the long-term roots off ecumenism and reconstructs the historical, theological, and political junctures that marked the beginning of a distinctive movement that runs throughout the 19th century and into the heart of the 20th.
