Wilken Colloquium

The Wilken Colloquium provides an annual forum held at Baylor University for conversations between Catholic and Evangelical scholars. Rather than being traditional ecumenical dialogue, the Wilken Colloquium aims to foster collegial sharing of wisdom inspired by the model of Robert Louis Wilken's work and interests, with particular attention to spiritual exegesis of Scripture. The Wilken Colloquium receives generous financial support from Baylor University and from the Canada Research Chair in Interpretation, Religion and Culture at Trinity Western University.

Please contact us if you are interesting in receiving information about upcoming Colloquia.
