Chiara Lubich: from Trento to the World

To mark the second anniversary of Chiara Lubich’s death, three Departments of the University of Trent (her birthplace) have decided to promote an international conference that is aimed at exploring her life and her theological, economic, and educational vision from a strictly academic point of view. As a global personality of exceptional charisma, Chiara Lubich’s social and cultural roots in the Trentino region deserve to be explored in their historical entirety. The main goal is to shed light on the evolution of Lubich’s thought, especially at the beginning of her activities, and on the deep impact she had internationally, the civic and religious conviventia, as well as on the inter-religious dialogue. A great emphasis will be placed on the pedagogical methods and contents of her work and the significant media coverage of her work and of Lubich herself. Her thought on love, family, ethics, religion(s), and gender will be deepened by a team of international scholars.
At the end of the conference, a roundtable will discuss new approaches to Lubich’s legacy from sociological, philosophical, and theological perspectives. Academic and local representatives will intervene and contribute to such a unique scholarly attempt to appreciate this contemporary global leader from Trent.
