Prof. Dieter Wins the Ratzinger Prize

The Institute for Ecumenical Research in Strasbourg takes great joy in announcing that our very own Prof. Theodor Dieter was received the renowned Ratzinger Prize, awarded yearly by the Pope Benedict XVI Foundation. Prof. Dieter has spent years participating in and contributing to the international Lutheran-Catholic dialogue and was a key drafter in such documents as the Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification (1999) and From Conflict to Communion (2013). He has authored numerous publications on ecumenical method and hermeneutics, and in his wide-reaching activities as lecturer and teacher he has done extensive work to commend the relevance of ecumenism to the wider church.

The Institute congratulates Prof. Dieter for this well-earned recognition of his impressive scholarly accomplishments in the field of ecumenical theology!
