The Night of the Churches – Nacht der Kirchen – is an annual ecumenical event in which all the city centre churches and a number of suburban Wiesbaden churches open their doors on the first Friday in September from 6 pm until midnight.
This year, we are very excited about our program, which will feature an ongoing art exhibition – From Isis to Mary – as well as performances by a renowned Egyptologist and singer, Dr. Heidi Köpp-Junk.
This is an excellent opportunity to examines the traces of ancient Egyptian religions – specifically the goddess Isis – in the monotheistic religions (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) and to understand more about the feminine aspects of divinity and the role of women in religion and society with the help of scholars and our fellow Christians from the Coptic Orthodox parish in Wiesbaden. The exhibition will continue through October.
