Welcome to my website!


Thank you for your interest in my work.

I am a professor of liturgy and sacramental theology, as well as the director of the Institute
for Liturgy, Christian Art and Hymnology at the University of Graz, Austria.

In addition, I hold the UNESCO-Chair for Intercultural and Inter-Religious Dialogue in South-Eastern Europe, and I also work for several ecumenical organizations.

My lectures and research generally deal with religious rites and inter-ecclesiastical and inter-faith contacts.
In my research I concentrate on Christian rites for the sick and the dying, in particular the anointing of the sick, and on Religion and Culture in several South-Eastern European countries, such as Greece, Bulgaria and Serbia.

On this website you will find data on my research (lists of publications and papers given at international conferences), lectures, several relevant links, and my curriculum vitae.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact envelopeme.
