Support Association

In order to support the Institute, a sponsoring association was founded last year according to German law, the "Strasbourg Society for Ecumenical Theology (Association for the Promotion of the Institute for Ecumenical Research in Strasbourg in the Service of the Lutheran World Federation) e.V."; the association is a non-profit organization, which means that a donation receipt can be issued for donations and membership fees, which is effective for tax purposes depending on national law.

But to the contents: The association has set itself two main goals for the coming year: firstly, it would like to have a party in early summer in our beautiful institute garden to mark the inauguration of the roof, which is intended not least as a thank-you to donors, but above all as a place where friends of the institute and ecumenical theology can meet. The second project - the publication of writings is explicitly mentioned in the statutes as the purpose of the association - is the participation in the publication of a documentation volume of the international colloquium, which was held in the spring of 2022 on the occasion of the 70th birthday of Prof. Dieter in the rooms of the Institute.

For further information please contact the managing director of the association at, you can download the Constitution (Satzung des Vereins) and a registration form ( Beitrittsformular).
