Institute for Theology and Peace
The Institute for Theology and Peace (Institut für Theologie und Frieden - ithf) is an academic facility of the Catholic Church and is administered by the Catholic Military Pastoral Care Service. At the core of its research and documentation activity lies political and social debate on issues of peace viewed from a theological perspective.
The library upheld by the Institute for Theology and Peace (ithf) is one of the world's leading scientific specialized libraries for questions concerning theological peace ethics.
The library's contextual focus (also integrating literature from the library of Hamburg's Archdiocese) lies in the fields of theology, peace research, ethics, religious studies, philosophy, political science, international law, historical science and sociology.
A specialty is the contextual analysis of topic-relevant articles printed in selected periodicals and collections.
