Canterbury to meet with Pope, convene 7th Building Bridges Seminar in Rome

[Lambeth Palace] The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Rowan Williams, will convene the 7th Building Bridges Seminar in Rome next week and will meet privately with His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI.

The Building Bridges Seminar is a unique annual series which brings together a range of internationally recognized Christian and Muslim scholars for an intensive study of relevant Biblical and Qur’anic texts.

The seminar, which is organized in partnership with Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., will run from May 6-8. “Communicating the Word: Revelation, Translation and Interpretation in Christianity and Islam,” builds on similar events in London, Doha, Sarajevo, Washington, D.C., and Singapore.

On May 7, Williams will preach and preside at a service for the Inauguration of his new Representative to the Holy See and director of the Anglican Centre in Rome, the Rev. David Richardson.
