Germany: Conference Report – Sustainability of sacred spaces

Germany: Conference Report – Sustainability of sacred spaces

From 17th-19th of January, the conference ‘Stakeholder synergies surrounding sacred space. Convergence of multi- and transdisciplinary approaches concerning sacred space sustainability‘ took place in Bonn, Germany. The conference aimed at enlarging expert knowledge on the issue of the use and conversion of sacred spaces.

The presented schedule was very diverse, and included key note speakers, various presentations, case studies, a workshop, poster presentations, exhibition visits and musical performances. The three days were filled with very interesting and topical discussions during which many different approaches to religious heritage and religious space were introduced.

The conference followed a recent book publication and two seminars on the same topic by the Bonner Seminar of Liturgical Science and is planned to lead to a more in-depth research project later on.
