The Department of Theology and Philosophy in partnership with the Bishop Simon Bruté College Seminary will host the Third Annual Bishop Simon Bruté Lecture on Monday, February 24 at 7 p.m. in the Michael A. Evans Center for Health Sciences room 150.
Fr. Denis Robinson, O.S.B., the president-rector and associate professor of systematic theology at St. Meinrad Seminary, will present, “What does Athens have to do with Jerusalem? Theology and Politics in a New Millennium.” This event is free and open to the public. Fr. Robinson is a theologian with special interest in the work of John Henry Newman. He also teaches and writes in the areas of Reformation theology, Anglican studies, theology, literature, and priesthood.
“The Bishop Simon Bruté Lectures are wonderful opportunities for the Marian University community and the general public to learn about key issues in Christian identity. The Bishop Simon Bruté College Seminary has been a wonderful partner in co-sponsoring these lectures with us each year. This year the Bishop Simon Bruté Lecture also celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Vatican II document on the Church, Lumen Gentium. We look forward to a wonderful evening of reflection on theology and politics with Fr. Robinson,” said Mark Reasoner, associate professor of biblical theology at Marian University.
This event is free and open to the public. There will be a reception immediately following the lecture.
