Sabine Lichtenfels

 

born in 1954, studied Theology in Germany. On completion of her studies she assumed a number of posts as teacher of Religious Studies. She resigned when learning that it was forbidden for a curate to live in a shared house. 

In 1981 Ms. Lichtenfels abandoned her career within the church and began a step towards the innovative research for which she is known today.

Her main research questions at that time were: How do communities, that are defined as human communities, are created? What are the foundations of life and living that enable love and fidelity to be lived? Why have the principles of humanity and loving thy neighbour, as spoken by Jesus, not been realised yet? Why does an overwhelming power still lie with those who prepare war and oppression? What are the necessary principles for the effective development of a peaceful culture?
