VIDEO: George Weigel’s JP2 Lecture: “Karol Wojtyła’s Areopagus Meditations: Lessons for the 21st Century West”


December 9, 2021 | Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas – the Angelicum


On December 9, 2021, EPPC Distinguished Senior Fellow George Weigel delivered the JP2 Lecture at the St. John Paul II Institute of Culture at the Faculty of Philosophy at the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas – the Angelicum in Rome. His lecture, titled “Karol Wojtyła’s Areopagus Meditations: Lessons for the 21st Century West,” explored the future John Paul II’s understanding of “the West” as a civilization, the West’s roots in biblical religion and Greek rationality, the future pope’s convictions about the theotropic nature of the human person, and the relevance of those themes for the current crisis of civilizational morale in the western world.
