Welcome to our Bavarian Research Center for Interreligious Discourses
The research center Key Concepts in Interreligious Discourses (KCID), whose goal was to reveal the theoretical roots of the three monotheistic world religions Judaism, Christianity and Islam in the interest of mutual understanding, is currently being expanded into the Bavarian Research Center for Interreligious Discourses (BaFID). Several years of previous research work by Prof. Dr. Georges Tamer, Dr. Katja Thörner and Fabian Schmidmeier, M.A. from Friedrich-Alexander-University and the project partners from the Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt around Prof. Dr. Christoph Böttigheimer and Dr. Wenzel Widenka were rewarded by the Bavarian State Government with additional funds in spring 2020. The new research center BaFID was opened in October 2020. Currently, the employees are structuring the work program for the next two years. New members of the team around founding director Prof. Dr. Georges Tamer and managing director Dr. Thörner are coordinator Gudrun Ferber-Robin, the research associates PD Dr. Christian Lange, PD Dr. Elke Morlok, Dr. Ghassan El Masri and Dr. des. Antonia Öksüzoglu. Kirsten Waltert, M.A. is currently rebuilding the BaFID homepage as the consultant for media and public relations.
