We will look at the history, culture and current diversity of denominations and practised religiosity in this country, which is so close and yet often very far away for many.

Binding pre-registration for the excursion is required by the end of October 2024 (stating the relevant faculty affiliation!) 

Students of the Faculty of Catholic Theology will be given preferential consideration when registering, but we are also happy to receive applications from students of other faculties.

Total costs: approx. 1,400 euros incl. full board (with faculty grant probably only approx. 700 euros)

This page will be continuously updated and will contain all the necessary information. We will also inform you about updates on the excursion via social media.

 The Department of Theology and History of the Eastern Churches deals in research and teaching with:

  • Orthodox Churches
  • Eastern Catholic Churches
  • Oriental Orthodox Churches
  • Patrology



It inscribes itself in a continuous research tradition at the University of Vienna (Eastern Church Law at the Faculty of Law since 1867, Eastern Church Studies and Patristics at the Faculty of Catholic Theology since 1975).

Against the background of the strong presence of Eastern Churches in Austria (Orthodoxy in second place among churches and religious communities) and the importance of the location for ecumenism, the department forms an important European interface of teaching and research in the field of Eastern Church Studies.

With regard to European transformation and identity processes, the historical dimension of the subject is of particular importance.
