The LSRS is an institution of higher education and research founded in 2015. It is the result of the reorganization of the higher education and research, lifelong learning, and adult education in the archdiocese of Luxembourg (Seminary, Institut de pédagogie religieuse). As a Catholic institution, it actively collaborates with the other religious communities that signed an agreement with the State.
It focuses on the relationship between religion and society as an ongoing, tense, complex, and transformative process of dialogue and mutual enrichment. In other words: the conjunction “and” in the School’s name is its theme and program.
As a theological institution, it involves religious communities and develops its research and teaching by bringing into dialogue the religious heritage, i.e., sources, rites, traditions, on one hand, and contemporary life experience, on the other hand, referring to philosophy, humanities, and natural sciences as hermeneutical tools.
