Opening Academic Year 2018-2019
Friday 31st August we will celebrate the Opening of the Academic Year in Utrecht with a special program for (new) students, the presentation of a new PThU Center, and a fresh start of 2018-2019!
Theology without borders
The theme of this day is ‘Theology without borders’. In a world where borders become vague or grow stronger, where borders are avoided or crossed, where borders provide clarity or restriction, we as theologians find our place. What is the borderline between science and faith? To what extend do you work across borders? What is the role of the Bible in this? And which role plays your faith?
