In collaboration with the Group for Social and Religious Research and Information (GRIS) of Bologna, we are committed to offering an understanding of the theoretical and practical matters concerning exorcism and demonic possession. To professionals and operators of the ministry of the exorcism and the prayer of liberation, we propose academic research, covering a wide range of disciplines, from anthropological, social, theological, liturgical, canonical, pastoral, spiritual, medical, neuroscientific, cultural and juridical perspectives. Given the ever-growing globalization of cultures, we want to enhance the internationality of our offer: professionals and operators, indeed, need to exchange practices and experiences, in order to recognize more easily phenomena from different cultures.
We want to engage philanthropists and benefactors in supporting the internationalization of our course. For doing it is important to facilitate the participation of attendants from areas such as the Philippines, African countries—where phenomena are becoming more frequent—and, at the same time, to increase the number of keynote speakers from outside of Europe.
For this reason, we count on the generous support for establishing up to 30 scholarships and for covering the costs of 10 intercontinental invitations.
Total cost for a 30 Scholarships: € 31,500 (€1,050 each)
