In a presentation Monday, Nov. 7, professor Marc Guerra will explain the unique Catholic teaching on the human person as a being created in the image and likeness of God, and redeemed in Jesus, and how that teaching contrasts to both classical and modern understandings of the human person.
The lecture titled “Particularity, Relationality, and the Person” begins at 7 p.m. in St. John Vianney Hall at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary, 100 East Wynnewood Road in Wynnewood.
Guerra is chair of the Department of Theology at Assumption College in Worcester, Mass., where he is also the director of the Core Texts and Enduring Questions Program. He is the author and editor of five books, including “Christians as Political Animals” and “Pope Benedict XVI and the Politics of Modernity,” and coeditor of “The Science of Modern Virtue.” His articles and essays have appeared in numerous periodicals and journals.
The talk is part of the seminary lecture series; contact the seminary’s School of Theological Studies at 610-785-6287 or visit http://www.scs.edu/sts for more information.
