RSVP to Matthew Crawford

The Institute for Religion and Critical Inquiry is pleased to invite you to a seminar presented by Professorial Fellow Lewis Ayres be held on Monday June 24.

Does a Catholic Theology of Tradition demand a particular practice of curation?  What virtues and habits would such a practice of curating tradition demand of us?  How central is the philological tradition to the practice of Christian theology and hence to the curation of its tradition?

Lewis Ayres is Professor of Catholic and Historical Theology at Durham University and a Professorial Fellow or the IRCI at ACU. He is the author of Nicaea and its Legacy and Augustine and the Trinity and served as co-editor for the recently published Oxford Handbook of Catholic Theology. He is currently writing a book on the emergence of Christian interpretive cultures in the second and third centuries titled As it is Written.

Following the seminar there will be refreshments. Please contact Matthew.Crawford@acu.edu.au to register attendance or for further information.
