Church History

The course, which lasted 5 years, took place from 2000 to 2005 and was prepared thanks to the contribution of professors from different cultural and geographical backgrounds, but “united in the name of Jesus” and experts in the field. The aim of the course was to be useful to all, even with the obvious limitations that every culture brings with it. Supported by the use of Church History texts already published in various languages, the course proposed lessons open to members – from both different Churches and cultures – oriented towards universal fraternity.

Theology

Activated immediately after the foundation of the Popular Marian University by Chiara Lubich on October 15th 1980, it was divided into various courses, held from 1981 to 1989. At the beginning there was a significant statement by Chiara herself: “… If a spirituality generates a life, a life contains in itself a doctrine…“. The theological lines of this doctrine were enucleated by a group of professors who were authors of the course, who – in their commitment to live “Where two or more are gathered together in my name, there am I in their midst” (Mt 18:20) – re-read from this perspective the fundamental themes of the Christian faith: Jesus Christ; The God of Jesus Christ, The Church in her mystery, The Church salvation of humankind, Christian hope. The first recipients of these studies were groups of students, young people and adults, animated by the same spirituality of unity and present in many parts of the world.
