Interdisciplinary Conference – Religious Hypotheses and the Study of Human Nature

The interdisciplinary conference will be held in Timisoara, Romania from 28-29 October, 2022. It focuses on the biblical view of human beings, seeking to answer the question about its truth from a multiplicity of angles, from philosophical through theological to scientific-empirical approaches. The talks are addressed to academics working in and outside the respective fields as well as to an interested lay audience. Attendance is free, for more information please refer to the poster above or visit:
