Ecclesiological Investigations Network

The Ecclesiological Investigations (EI) International Research Network exists to help to foster scholarship and dialogue throughout the different churches and between Christianity and other faith communities, as well as between the church and secular societies. Launched in 2007, its original foundational work stretches back to 2002. The network has organized international gatherings in Europe, North America, East Asia, and South Asia, along with periodic local seminars and regular sessions for the American Academy of Religion, where the Ecclesiological Investigations Program Unit has been a very popular fixture since 2006. The network is led by Gerard Mannion, a Berkley Center senior research fellow and Amaturo Chair of Catholic Studies in Georgetown’s Department of Theology. Oxford University’s Mark Chapman, professor of the history of modern theology and vice-president of Ripon College, Cuddesdon, and Vladimir Latinovic of Tubingen University make up the international leadership team. The Ecclesiological Investigations Network publishes two book series: the Pathways for Ecumenical and Interreligious Dialogue series with Palgrave Macmillan and the Ecclesiological Investigations series with Bloomsbury. The network also has a long-standing history of collaboration with Ecclesiology: the Journal for Ministry, Mission and Unity.
