Welcome to the virtual version of In the Logos of Love — the highly successful academic conference on the future of Catholic intellectual tradition, jointly conceived and presented by the Institute and the University of Dayton earlier this month.
We received tremendous interest in the conference and wanted to ensure that those academics, scholars and others who were unable to attend would have access to the vital, stimulating and illuminating presentations and discussions the conference generated.
We are pleased to present bring highlights of the conference, including recaps and video excerpts of select plenary sessions as well as additional content and commentary by conference speakers, guests and other participants.
Scott Appleby, John M. Regan Jr. Director of the Kroc Center for International Peace Studies and professor of History at the University of Notre Dame “new Catholics” — the younger generation of Catholics who are coming into adulthood in an unprecedented global reality. He asks how Catholic educators can support the aspirations of these young people toward addressing the challenges this global reality presents — those of poverty, violence and ecological threats.
Diaz is speaking on the Catholic relation to “the other” and the concept of the Holy Trinity as both the central Christian mystery (rather than a “math problem to be solved,”) and as an expression of the embodiment of the Other in Catholic spirituality and theology.
Stay tuned for video of both presentations!
