Conferences and Seminars

The Sangalli Institute for the history and religious cultures an institution whose aim is to study historical and religious topics in a long-period perspective, from Middle Ages to the present age, but concerning also some particular aspects of more distant eras.
Its interests, apart from Christianity, are intended to establish useful and necessary comparisons with other religions and cultures, particularly when they were interacting in a same territory or age.

Its aim is also to enrich those topics with the contributions of other disciplines, like for instance theology and philosophy, literature and history of the language, history of law and economy, arts and architecture and so on.

For these purposes, the Institute establishes partnerships with public and private institutions, promoting some common plans of researches and financially supporting the works of some young scholars.

Therefore, the Sangalli Institute deals with those topics using any possible means of communication, like:

  • conferences
  • discussions on books
  • lectures
  • seminars
  • congresses

Though the Institute is essentially a research institution, its purpose is to organize and participate to some occasions of public thinking over the topics related to the inter-confessional and inter-religious dialogue, opened to a larger and less specialized public.
