A comprehensive work on the Christian Call for Unity has

doctrinal elaborations and theological languages; a
collection of individual and generational developments; a
focus on ecclesiastical and institutional patterns, and an
historical connection between ecumenism, politics and

A number of scholars attempt to fill this gap: historians,
theologians and members of several Christian denominations
present their researches focused on the search for Christian
unity and its history. The aim is to create a scientific
network and to launch an international research program on
the history of ecumenism in the 19th and 20th Century. This
book presents the first results.

Luca Ferracci is a member of the John XXIII
Foundation for Religious Studies in Bologna where he is
involved in the international research program on the
history of ecumenism.
