The Institute for Religion and Critical Inquiry is delighted to invite you to attend a series of four upcoming lectures delivered by Professor Christoph Markschies on the topic ‘How theological is church history? Excursions into the history and present of a discipline.’ Professor Markschies is professor of Ancient Christianity at Humboldt-University in Berlin, president of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities, and president of the Union of the German Academies of Sciences and Humanities. He also served as president of Humboldt-University between 2006 and 2010. 

The series of four lectures were originally delivered in German for the Joseph Ratzinger Papst Benedikt XVI.-Stiftung at the University of Regensburg in 2017 and we are honoured to be hosting the debut of their English translation. We welcome any and all to attend but registration is kindly requested to assist with planning. Please note that the first lecture will be an evening public lecture followed by a reception and lectures 2-4 will be midday seminar-style lectures, with boxed lunches provided afterwards.
