Meetings

At the same time as the celebrations were held for the 90th anniversary of the foundation of the Protestant Theological Faculty in Prague, on 19-22 November 2009, the society for its alumni, the Association of Friends of the Protestant Theological Faculty, was also celebrating the tenth anniversary of its foundation. 25 members of the Association, many of whom had travelled to Prague from other countries, were able to be present at the formal ceremony on Thursday 19 November when Prof. Karel A. Deurloo from Amsterdam and Prof. Gerhard Sauter from Bonn were awarded honorary doctorates by Charles University. In this way these two theologians were honoured for all they had done for the Faculty and theological life in Prague, in particular during the time of the Cold War.
