Theology in the City Lecture Series


As a preeminent international center for the study of theology and the formation of leaders for tomorrow's Church, the Jesuit School of Theology created the Theology in the City lecture series in 2000 to enrich public discourse and promote greater understanding of Catholic theology and issues of contemporary religious and social concern.

Attendees have characterized the lectures as "spiritually nourishing, sacred moments," "an invigoration of the intellectual side of faith issues," and "a wonderful evening – mentally, spiritually, and emotionally stimulating." Popular recent topics include: “Bare Feet and Theology: Women Religious as Agents of Change in Asia,” “Ignatian Theology and the Culture Wars,” and “Catholics in the Public Square: The Landscape Since Vatican II.”
