Sr. Kathleen McManus, OP, theology, will present “Light of Nations? Reading Lumen Gentium in the 21st Century” as part of the Theology Thursdays lecture series on Thursday, April 11, at 7:30 p.m., in Buckley Center room 310. The lecture is free and open to faculty, staff, students, and the public.
Lumen Gentium (The Dogmatic Constitution on the Church), one of the principal documents of the Second Vatican Council, set forth a prophetic vision of the Church as sign and source of communion for the world. After tracing the evolution in ecclesiology that paved the way for Vatican II, and examining the theological evolution of the document itself, McManus will draw upon insights emerging from the interface of theology and evolutionary science in order to explore the fertile promise of Lumen Gentium for today’s paradoxically globalized yet painfully fragmented world.
