Cardinal Dulles is considered one of the most important and influential

theologians of our time.  Born in 1918, he received his bachelor’s degree from Harvard in 1940 and went on to serve overseas during World War II as an officer in the U.S. Naval Reserve.  After entering the novitiate of the Society of Jesus in 1946, he pursued graduate studies and went on to appointments as a professor of theology at Woodstock College (1960-74), The Catholic University of America (1974-88), and Fordham University (since 1988).  Pope John Paul II named him a cardinal of the Catholic Church in 2001.


Cardinal Dulles has been a prolific author of important works in theology, including 26 books (a number of them having been translated into other languages) and more than 750 articles and book reviews. 


                        A reception will follow the lecture, which is free and open to the public.
