zuntier.com aims to reflect on what it is to be human today and to question our convictions and contradictions alike.
What is zuntier.com?
zuntier.com, an GħST (or Theology Students’ Association) project with the collaboration of Media Centre Limited. evolved from Logos, a yearly-issued leaflet by GħST discussing topics of a strictly theological nature. However, this project has gradually developed into a web portal providing a meeting place where both contributors and readers alike get involved in questioning their attitudes and behaviour, irrespective of nationality and belief.
This is a project that questions our values and our understanding of ourselves.We believe that we can live together with our differences without denying who we are. Our goal is to help people respect and appreciate each other while delving more into our own story and identity, of what makes us who we are as human beings situated within a very concrete reality.Rooted in the Maltese context, this project explores an identity that neither begins nor ends with the Catholic Church, but which is intrinsically shaped by it nonetheless. Hence the name “zuntier” (the parvis). This is the last place before entering into a church. The hub of local village life not too long ago, the parvis remains a meeting point where our beliefs and ambiguities are played out.
All of this is done through our platform which provides a space for reflection and discussion for all people to engage, especially young people at university and graduates. It welcomes all young people to be contributors to this and also opens horizons for academics and specialists to share their opinions and knowledge through articles. Through social media such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, we open this platform to public engagement.
GħST is the official student organisation of the Faculty of Theology at the University of Malta. GħST represents students with university authorities, and it helps its members to put their spiritual and theological formation into practice.
