The Institute for Catholic Thought and Culture (ICTC) has put together a robust lineup of lectures and discussions for the fall quarter, starting with the Catholic Heritage Lecture Series on Oct. 8. Here's the full rundown.

Internationally Renowned Theologian Philipp Renczes, S.J., to Kick off Catholic Heritage Lecture Series

Pigott Auditorium

PhilippRenczes_100The Institute for Catholic Thought and Culture invites you to examine the roots of the Church's call for engagement with religions in welcoming Philipp Renczes, S.J., as the first speaker of the 2013-2014 Catholic Heritage Lecture Series. Father Renczes, the director of the Cardinal Bea Centre for Judaic Studies at Gregorian University in Rome, will present "A Vision Meant to Stay 'Centered': Cardinal Augustin Bea, S.J., Vatican II and the Cardinal Bea Centre."

Since the 1965 Vatican II Council declaration Nostra Aetate, the world has seen a growing engagement of the Catholic Church with Judaism and the Jewish People, sometimes to the surprise of some of the Church's close observers, inside and out. Renczes' talk will retrace major milestones that link Vatican II to ensuing Church statements and events, and bring to light a theological guideline of the contemporary Catholic Reading of Jewish-Christian Relations that has inspired Church leaders as varied as Popes John Paul II, Benedict XVI and Francis.
