The Meister-Eckhart-Gesellschaft is an international society for the promotion of the study and research into the life, writings, and reception of Master Eckhart (c. 1260-1328) in an interdisciplinary context.
Meetings of the society will be held annually in March or April around eastern. The first meeting took place on April, 9-10, 2005 in Erfurt and the following years in Strasbourg (2006), Würzburg (2007), Trier (2008) Regensburg (2009), Munich (2010) and Erfurt (2011).
The principal publication organ of the society will be a yearbook, the "Jahrbuch der Meister-Eckhart-Gesellschaft", which will be open to the whole range of disciplines that have an impact on Eckhart studies.
