Hanna-Barbara Gerl-Falkovitz

Awarded, together with Prof. Ludger Schwienhorst-Schönberger, the Ratzinger Prize in the last edition, Hanna-Barbara Gerl-Falkovitz studied philosophy and German political science. She has taught at the universities of Munich, Bayreuth, Tübingen and Eichstätt. Since 2011 she has been directing the European Institute for Philosophy and Religion at the Benedict XVI Philosophical-Theological University located at the Cistercian monastery Stift Heiligenkreuz near Heiligenkreuz.

The study of Hanna-Barbara Gerl-Falkovitz's long career has focused on the philosophy of religion and cultural anthropology, with special attention to the figures of Edith Stein and Romano Guardini. Gerl-Falkovitz combines these two great figures with the method of phenomenology, i.e., exact observation and description.

In his own words, Gerl-Falkovitz has maintained his faith and has increasingly delved into it through philosophy. His studies provide, moreover, a counterbalance to the Gnostic leveling of the male-female polarity.

The meeting "Body, love, pleasure - does it make sense to separate nature and person?" will be held, in person and following the relevant health guidelines, in the Aula de Grados of the Universidad San Dámaso de Madrid. The meeting will begin at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 16, 2021 and will be moderated by David Torrijos Castrillejo, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Madrid. San Dámaso Ecclesiastical University.

The meeting will be available online at Omnes YouTube channel.
