A group of relational ontology scholars from Italy, the Ricerche di Ontologia Relazionale (ROR) group, is visiting Helsinki in September to deepen their knowledge of Finnish Luther studies and the field of ontology here. The visit is a follow-up to the scholarly meeting Re-thinking Ontology with Luther held in Rome last May. Part of the visit to Helsinki is a two-day seminar of open lectures under the heading Luther and Christian Ontology from Antiquity to Modern Theology.
