2009 Parliament of the World's Religions

The Council for a Parliament of the World's Religions is to be held in Melbourne, Australia December 3-9, 2009.

The origins of the Council go back to the 1893 event, which was considered to be the birthplace of the modern interreligious movement. Since 1993, the event has been held every 5 years in a major international city -- Chicago (1993), Cape Town (1999), and Barcelona (2004).
