Centrul de Educaţie Creştină şi Cultură Contemporană AREOPAGUS
The Areopagus Centre is a nongovernmental, nonprofit organization which seeks to analyze the religious phenomenon and to contribute to the enrichment of the role of religious communities in Romania and in southeastern Europe. The Centre functions on an interconfessional level, offering the different traditions and religious groups of Romania an optimal context for collaboration and dialogue.
The Areopagus Centre was founded in 1997 by a group of Christians concerned with presenting the Gospel in a way that is relevant to contemporary culture and society. The organization’s name itself—“Areopagus”—reflects this ethos, being inspired by the name of the ancient Areopagus of Athens, where Saint Apostle Paul presented the Christian message in dialogue with the philosophies of his day and as an alternative to these (Acts ch. 17).
