Catholic University’s School of Theology and Religious Studies, in cooperation with St. Anselm’s Abbey, presents a lecture titled “Faith and Reason: Ways to the Questions of God,” by Rev. David Tracy, the Andrew Thomas Greeley and Grace McNichols Greeley Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus of Catholic Studies at the University of Chicago Divinity School. This talk is the 37th Annual Thomas Verner Moore Lecture.

Father Tracy is widely known for his work in philosophical, systematic, and constructive theology, and on questions relating to religion and modern thought. Prior to joining the faculty of the University of Chicago, he taught at Catholic University from 1967 to 1969. He was a founding editor of Religious Studies Review, a co-editor of the Journal of Religion, and served on the editorial board of Concilium, to which he has also contributed numerous articles. Elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1982, he gave the 1999-2000 Gifford Lectures at the University of Edinburgh under the title “This Side of God.” When published, these lectures will constitute the first volume of a three-volume work on God, Christology and the Holy Spirit in the light of interreligious dialogue.

The lecture is free and open to the public. A reception will follow. For more information, e-mail
