Since 1966, the Institute has offered annual Summer Seminars in Strasbourg to share the findings and breakthroughs of the ecumenical movement with a wider audience. Over the course of more than five decades, the Summer Seminars have explored an incredibly rich range of subjects, from Mary, liturgy, and the sacraments to ethics, church-state relations, and mission. Participants from Europe and farther abroad gather for a week of lectures offered by specialists in their fields, as well as daily prayer, shared meals, and an outing into the Alsatian countryside, complete with wine tasting and museum visiting.
