|International Theological Conference "The Knowledge of God: East and West. Dogmatic and Spiritual Dimensions"|

The Christian Churches in the West and East have been seeking new approaches to interpreting the nature of the knowledge of God to reengage the reciprocal relation between theology and spirituality and to balance theological academic education with missionary practices of evangelization of the Church. It is commonly believed that the depth of the knowledge of God is found in the living experience of communicating with God. But how are we to articulate it theologically and implement it practically in the face of secularist challenges of the postmodern era? This conference proposes to become a theological forum, in which we will discuss different ways to attain the knowledge of God in the context of secularization and globalization.
Conference Focus. The Conference intends to be a theological forum for Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Ukrainian Greek Catholic and Protestant theologians to discuss different approaches to the “knowledge of God” based on Western and Eastern traditions.
