FUNDRAISING

“What is possible in Antwerp by the FVG is not possible in The Netherlands and may-be even in Europe”.*

The FVG is the only institution in Belgium and may-be in Europe, where you can study all the great religions and philosophies on a scientific and pluralistic basis: the study of Christianity in all its forms and churches, the religion of Islam and its many aspects of Sunnis, Shiites and Sufi movements, Jewish religion and spirituality, mysticism, Gnosticism, mythology, Buddhism, Hindu, Jain, Sikh, Baha'i, African philosophy and religion, humanism...

In today's world, religion and culture are in constant contact. Without prejudice the FVG aims to introduce you into the world of religions and philosophies. That's our definition of comparative study of religions: we offer knowledge about the various religions and encourage the students to independently adopt the comparative study themselves.

As an independent, pluralistic institution, we do not belong to any movement, ideology, church or philosophical beliefs. Proselytism is out of the question for us, even though our professors teach "from within" and the practical experience of the various religions and philosophies is also part of the curriculum.

Our pluralistic and open intercultural approach aims to encourage the students in "active tolerance": to get to know the other in order to at once rediscover, better understand and put into perspective their own values and lifestyles.

Apart from being an educational and religious center for comparative scientific research, the FVG also aims to be a forum for effective inter-religious encounter. More info: www.antwerpfvg.org
