Dear Reader,

We present you with the EST journal, Theologica Wratislaviensia. It is a scientific journal that aims to reflect on important issues and provoke debate primarily in contemporary theological thought. This journal is ecumenical just like the school. The statements in the journal are from invited theologians, philosophers, linguists, and teachers of various trends and provenance. We hope that in this way we can create an environment of open and honest dialogue, and polemics, going beyond dogmatic individual religious traditions. Such a dialogue, it seems, is much needed in our country (Poland), especially in the broader theological thought.
