    The PRO ORIENTE Foundation was initiated by (the then Archbishop of Vienna,) Cardinal Franz König in Vienna on 4 November 1964 while the Second Vatican Council was still in progress. Ever since then, PRO ORIENTE has worked to overcome the schism between the Roman Catholic Church and the Orthodox and Oriental Orthodox Churches at a scientific level and by means of “travelling diplomacy”.
