Description

Even though Nikolaus von Kues is known today primarily as a philosopher and theologian, his literary work came into being in the few hours of leisure and relaxation, apart from his almost untiring work as a diplomat, church politician and peace mediator, which led him through half of Europe in the service of the Church. From his tranquil hometown in Kues he entered the international political stage for the first time at the Council of Basel in 1432. From here his way led him to Constantinople (today: Istanbul), where he was able to convince the Byzantine emperor and patriarch of his participation in a Union Council in Ferrara/Florence. On behalf of the Pope he met the German King and the Electors at the Imperial and Court Diets and tried in vain to reform the German Church in 1451/52 as a legate. Although his time as Prince-Bishop of Brixen was anything but successful, he was repeatedly sought as a peace broker in the 100-year war between England and France. In the Brixen years he wrote two of his most important writings, 'De pace fidei' ('Peace in Faith') and 'Cribratio Alkorani' ('The Sighting of the Qur'an'), which are still being considered in interreligious dialogue today.

In the current exhibition at the Cusanusstift all these points will be explored. After the visit of the Federal President and the Diplomatic Corps, the exhibition will be open to all interested parties from 19 September to 30 June 2020, from Monday to Friday 09.00-12.00 (except 21.12.2019 - 05.01.2020 and 24.-28.02.2020). Admission is free, we would be delighted to receive your donation. The date for a public introduction to the exhibition will be announced at a later date.
