Theological response to economic crises topic of Eureka College religion colloquium
November 18 - 12:15 pm - Commons East Room
A recent encyclical by Pope Benedict XVI that offers a theological response to economic crises and issues of economic development will be the topic of a meeting of the Garrison Theology Colloquium at Eureka College at 12:15 p.m. Nov. 18 in the East Room in Dickinson Commons on east College Avenue.
The free forum for Eureka College faculty, staff and students; area ministers; and the public will examine a selection from “Caritas in Veritate (Charity in Truth).”
“Christians and thoughtful people stand to benefit from the considered views of Pope Benedict, a gifted and accomplished theologian and scholar,” said Eureka College religion professor William Wright. “The colloquium is pleased to offer a venue for ecumenical discussion of current Catholic theology for Catholic and non-Catholic alike.”
For an advance copy of the reading selection, contact Wright at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The colloquium meets regularly to discuss contemporary issues in theology. It is named for W.E. Garrison, a theologian who graduated from Eureka College in 1892 and helped found The Christian Century magazine.
