21 January 2021

Contributions made to the Conference on “The Hope of Communion: From 1920 to 2020” have now premiered on CEC YouTube channel. The playlist features video presentations from renowned theologians and church leaders from across Europe and beyond.

The conference organised by the Conference of European Churches (CEC) together with the Louvain Centre for Eastern and Oriental Christianity (LOCEOC) was held from 16 to 17 December 2020.

The speakers at the conference reflected on the significance and impact that the two landmark ecumenical texts from 1920 had on the ecumenical dialogue: “The Patriarchal Encyclical Letter to the Churches of Christ Everywhere” issued by the Ecumenical Patriarchate, and “The Appeal to all Christian People” issued by the Lambeth Conference of Anglican Bishops.

The conference also examined the expectations for unity formulated in these texts, exploring their role in subsequent ecumenical developments and focusing on the hope of communion for relations between the churches today.
