The Future of Christian Thinking Conference at St Patrick's Pontifical University , Maynooth, 27th-30th April 2022.
A successful conference held on campus with a stellar line up of internationally renowned speakers.
The Conference brought together experts and thinkers from multi-denominations and perspectives to address the major and unprecedented challenges faced by Christianity.
Today, perhaps more than ever before, Christian thought faces unprecedented challenges; ranging from a denial of metaphysics, to previously unforeseen ethico- moral questions arising from contemporary science and ever-advancing technologies, to a full-blown economising of the political, to name just some of the most obvious. Couple this with the fact that amongst Christian thinkers there is no real consensus on the meaning, definition and end of Christian thinking and the future of Christian thinking looks hazy, unclear and tenuous.
Guest speakers included: Rowan Williams, Eleonore Stump, DB Hart, John Milbank, Cyril O'Regan, William Desmond, Thomas Joseph White, DC Schindler, Francesca Aran Murphy, Judith Wolfe, Patrick Lee, Rudi te Velde, Therese-Anne Druart, Philipp Rosemann, Mette Lebech, Caitlin Smith Gilson, Gyula Klima, John Knasas, Philip John Paul Gonzales, Gaven Kerr.
