The Household of God and Local Households:

Revisiting the Domestic Church

2010 saw EI co-sponsor and co-organise two very successful international conferences, including the 4th Annual EI International Conference, which took as its theme: ‘The Household of God and Local Households: Revisiting the Domestic Church’.

This event took place at the Catholic University of Louvain (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven), Belgium from March 2010 and was attended by over 200 participants. The conference was a collaboration between, INTAMS (International Academy for Marital Spirituality) and the Center for Ecumenical Research, KU Leuven, Belgium.

Participants came from an extraordinarily rich and diverse mix in geographical, ethnic, ecclesial, disciplinary, methodological and professional backgrounds.

The conference was intended to revisit critically the notion of domestic church and to explore the potential, both theological and pastoral, that the idea of minusculae Ecclesiae may have for the life of the churches and of families.

The conference was targeted towards scholars and practitioners who are working in the fields of ecclesiology, family studies, ecumenical theology, moral theology, social ethics, practical theology, contextual theology, public theology, gender studies, feminist theology, church history, biblical studies, patristics, and hermeneutics, amongst other fields.
