  • Models of ecumenical spirituality
    • Organized together with the Pontifical Chair  of the UCA, different protagonists will be presented who gave life to the dialogue in the great Christian oikoumene, echoing the prayer and mandate of Jesus: “May they all be one: like you, Father, you are in me and I in you, that they too may be one in us, so that the world may believe that you sent me . ”
    • The seminar will be held on Mondays October 3, 17, 24 and 31 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. online through the Zoom platform.

  • Creation and Evolution: The insights of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
    • The seminar gathers the current cultural debate on science and religion, on the one hand, and, on the other, the renewed interest in connecting the scientific and religious worlds of experience. The figure of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin is an outstanding example of distinction, dialogue and integration of these worlds.
    • After tracing a semblance of the life and theological mission of Teilhard de Chardin, a synthesis of the typologies of the relationship between faith and science until the Modern Age will be presented. The reception by theology and by the Catholic magisterium of biological evolution and the Teilhardian classification of the creation process, with its growing complexity, until reaching the Omega Point, will be revisited. Finally, the questions that Teilhard put to theology will be addressed: the historical dimension of the cosmos and of life; the origin of the human being; an integrating spirituality of matter. The reflection itinerary will conclude on the challenge of believing in the Trinitarian Creator God in the age of science.
    • The seminar will be held on Wednesdays, October 5, 12, 19, and 26 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. online through the Zoom platform.

  • Approach to the Gospel of Luke and Acts of the Apostles
    • The course will begin with a general view of Lucan work; its main and distinctive characteristics, to then highlight the transformation of some of the characteristic characters of Saint Luke in the great sections of the Gospel and the book of the Acts of the Apostles.
    • The set of these two “books” of the Lucan work constitutes the largest narrative of the New Testament. In it, a history of salvation is presented that, announced in the First Testament, reaches its salvific finality in Jesus Christ, opening from his Passover and from the election of Israel to all nations, towards eschatological fulfillment. Saint Luke recounts the project of God the Father that is carried out by the Son and the Holy Spirit: it is the Way of the Word offered and preached to all peoples, permeated by the sign of mercy, through its servants and witnesses.
    • The seminar will be held on Fridays October 14, 21, 28 and Friday November 4 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. online through the Zoom platform.
