DETAILS:         Monsignor Robert Sokolowski, CUA’s Elizabeth Breckenridge Caldwell Professor of Philosophy, will deliver the third lecture in the series “Faith, Reason and the Imagination: Seeing the Sacred.” Monsignor Sokolowski’s talk, titled “Art and Christian Intelligence,” will explore portraiture as “a presentation of a whole life in its significant, articulated parts.”


Monsignor Sokolowski’s lecture accompanies an exhibit at the Pope John Paul II Cultural Center titled “Contemplating the Sacred: Religious Works of Contemporary Artists,” which opened March 8 and will run through April 15. Provided by the Foundation for Sacred Arts, the exhibit at the cultural center is the first of several stops on a national tour.


The lecture series and art exhibit will explore the intersection of faith, reason and the imagination, expanding the themes of a fall 2003 lecture series at CUA that examined faith and the formation of intellect. The other lectures in the series are scheduled for April 5 and April 13.


All the lectures are free and open to the public. For more information, call 202-319-5114.
