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.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
