Host: Collegium Institute

Join the Collegium Institute for our Fall 2020 Faith & Reason module, A Balm in Gilead: Race, Theology, & Black Catholicism. 


Faith & Reason is an interdisciplinary seminar that investigates the relationship and relevance of Christian thought to life in the modern world and university.  Past modules have explored a variety of topics, from mental health to beauty, through an intentionally interdisciplinary means, bringing together voices from theology, philosophy, poetry, fiction and the arts. With this approach we probe the theological imagination, to try to understand the relationship between faith and reason, and to seek a better understanding of the world and the transcendent.


This semester we'll be delving into the deep, rich history and traditions of Black Catholicism, while also exploring the relation between race and Christian theology more broadly.  We will be joined by several distinguished scholars to facilitate these discussions, including Prof. Cecilia Moore (University of Dayton; Institute for Black Catholic Studies at Xavier University of Louisiana), Prof. Vincent Lloyd (Villanova University), and more. We will engage with these topics, once a week over the course of 6 weeks, and do so by exploring it from the vantage of theology, philosophy, the arts, history and religious studies.


Fridays | 3:00pm–4:00pm | Oct. 16, Oct. 23, Oct. 30, Nov. 6, Nov. 13, Nov. 20
