Registration International Conference

Academic scholars are kindly invited to register their participation in the International Conference on Faith, Hope and Love that the Thomas Instituut will host on 11-14 December 2013 in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
NB Please register before November 1, 2013! After this date a request for registration will need special approval.
The conference will host a maximum number of 60 scholars, which means that only 60 registrations will be accepted. More than half of them will come from outside The Netherlands. Five scholars will deliver keynote lectures, and twentyfive scholars will present a short lecture or a paper. The character of the conference is expert, the language spoken English.

The conference will take place in the heart of Utrecht, an ancient and picturesque provincial capital that has transformed itself into an innovative city of knowledge and culture, right in the middle of the Netherlands. Participants will convene both in the newly redecorated buildings of the Tilburg School of Catholic Theology, on one of Utrecht’s canals, and at the Ariënsinstituut of the Archdiocese of Utrecht.

Participants are kindly requested to arrange their own hotel bookings. Upon request a list of possible hotels nearby will be provided. A limited number of rooms in the loft of the Ariënsinstituut is available for clerics who present a paper. Please contact us:
