On Saturday October 1, the faculty will open its doors for an afternoon with and about science! Everyone who is interested, from young to old, is welcome to experience how to research religions between 12 and 5 pm, discover what our building (the old courthouse of the city) looks like and to participate in the engage in religious studies and theology.
