I attended the Catholic University of America’s papal symposium, “A Common Morality for a Global Age: In Gratitude for What We Have Been Given,” on March 27-30, hosted by the Catholic University’s Center for Law, Philosophy and Culture. Speaking at the symposium were members of AUL’s Board of Advisors, Robert P. George (top) and Hadley Arkes (bottom).
Other keynote speakers included Cardinal Angelo Scola, the Patriarch of Venice, and Gilbert Meilander. The symposium was held in response to Pope Benedict XVI’s call for universities to increase dialogue on the role of natural law in the modern age, and the interplay of both faith and reason in the pursuit of truth. All speeches will be published by the Journal for Law, Philosophy and Culture. For more information on the symposium, please visit http://law.cua.edu/clpc/internationalsymposium/
