Special Event


Đại Đạo Tam Kỳ Phổ Đọ (Cao Đài) is one of the six officially recognized religions in today’s Vietnam. Since its inception in 1926, Cao Đài has played a decisive role in Vietnamese society.

The doctrine is based on the idea of unifying major religious traditions including Buddhism, Confucianism, Daoism, Christianity, Islam and others under the banner of a new monotheistic belief.

For the first time, a delegation of Cao Đài dignitaries will visit Austria and introduce the history and the main doctrinal tenets of this remarkable movement.

The seminar has been jointly organized by the Department of Religious Studies and the Department of East Asian Studies at the University of Vienna. For more information, please see the official announcement in <file:133241 _blank download>German or in <file:133242 _blank download>English.
