Theresa Farnan on the Crisis of Confidence in Truth and Meaning

On September 16, Fellow Theresa Farnan will deliver a lecture at Benedictine College’s conference “Faith and Reason in a Post Truth Era: Celebrating 25 Years of John Paul II’s Fides et Ratio.” Pope Saint John Paul II’s prophetic encyclical concerning the essential relationship between faith and reason provides the key to a proper understanding of our world and an antidote to many of today’s cultural issues. At this conference, three experts on faith and reason and their application to various cultural ills will present keynote lectures, and a panel of Benedictine College faculty will discuss the document’s continuing relevance in the classroom and in their research. The conference will be available in-person and online.
