Since 1999, University of Hamburg has been keeping up the preparations to establish an Academy for World Religions. With the opening of the Academy for World Religions in June 2010, the University of Hamburg is going one step further and people of all faiths learn together about Christianity, Judaism and Islam. The academy will also train Muslim, Jewish, Christian clerics and religious instruction teachers.
Wolfram Weisse, Director of Center for World Religions in Dialogue, told to "Hamburger Abendblatt" about their study on the academy regulations. Weisse expressed that a university that teaches about all world religions is really needed both for scientific and social grounds.
