Public lectures: Evangelisation by Local Missionaries - MAXIMUM ILLUD LECTURE SERIES

26

Mar

The FRS is holding a MAXIMUM ILLUD LECTURE SERIES from 26th March to 11th December in the Saint Joseph Seminary



MAXIMUM ILLUD LECTURE SERIES

One Hundred Years ago, Pope Benedict XV called for the missionary activity of the Church to be carried out in future by missionaries from the very countries and cultures being evangelised. This was welcomed by many and resisted by some, but was surely the cornerstone of the Church’s evangelising efforts for a century. To mark this centenary, the Faculty of Religious Studies of the University of Saint Joseph presents a lecture series exploring the history, theology and impact of this teaching, contained in Pope Benedict XV’s document Maximum Illud.
