Dear students

We look forward to welcoming you at our events. We are happy to inform you about our various offers. This semester is focused on the following topic: Homeland

Leo-Talk about Homeland

Sagrada Familia of Gaudí

Monday, May 6th, 20.00 – 21.00 clock
Leo 15, St. Leodegar-Strasse 15
How can a human being narrate his own identity with stones? The answer to this is shown by the masterpiece of the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí. And thereby, he reveals the identity of a nation as a spiritual homeland. This identity is an open one, since the symbols and forms of this temple come from very different traditions. That is why they are building such a rich and multicolor 3D-narrative, where everyone can find his own place.
With Dr. Jean-Paul Hernandez SJ
