Religion, Innovation, and Digital Humanities: A Research on Young People and the Catholic Church in Padua

05 November 2019 | 10:00 — 13:00

FBK Aula Piccola

Fondazione Bruno Kessler - Polo delle Scienze Umane e sociali
Aula Piccola

The workshop focuses on the experience of this Synod as a case of religious innovation. This religious event can be considered in fact innovative with respect to the more usual pastoral practices of Catholic parishes.

Through digital research methods and the adoption of an inedit research approach, the workshop explores the over 2000 pages containing experiences and suggestions of almost 5,000 young from Padua with respect to the challenges and the future of the Catholic Church. The results of the research will be discussed with experts from different sectors.

The workshop will be held in Italian.

This event is embedded in the mission on religion and innovation of our Center, as articulated in our 2019 position paper Religion and Innovation: Calibrating Research Approaches and Suggesting Strategies for a Fruitful Interaction.

For an account of FBK-ISR’s work on religion and innovation please consult our booklet Religion & Innovation at FBK.

Finally, this event continues the lecture series Religion and Innovation started in 2018.
