Centro Pro Unione documentary on Rome summer course

The Centro Pro Unione, a research and ecumenical action center in the heart of Rome, has recently produced a magnificent documentary on the “unique experience lived in learning and participating in the program of the annual Summer Course: ‘Introduction to the Ecumenical & Interreligious Movements from a Catholic Perspective’.” The Centro and the GTF have enjoyed a formal affiliation for nearly 25 years, and many GTF students have attended the Centro Summer Course in Rome, applying credits toward their degrees at the GTF.

Watch the documentary and see images of the Centro’s historic lecture hall and many places that students visit during the summer course such as the Basilica of St. Paul’s outside the walls, St. Peter’s Basilica and excavations, St. John Lateran Cathedral and Baptistery, as well as the Synagogue and Mosque of Rome!
