May 16: “The Catholic Roots of Religious Freedom,” by Robert WilkenPosted on May 16, 2012 by Ursula

Wednesday, May 16, 7:00 PM
“The Catholic Roots of Religious Freedom”
Robert Wilken, University of Virginia
Social Sciences 122
1126 East 59th Street  

 

 The roots of modern ideas of religious freedom are as much religious as they are political and philosophical. The American political leaders who first championed these ideas were well aware of the religious sources supporting their views. This lecture will explore how early Christian thinkers developed a theological understanding of religious freedom.

Robert Louis Wilken is the William R. Kenan Jr. Professor of the History of Christianity Emeritus at the University of Virginia. He is the author of numerous books, including The Spirit of Early Christian Thought: Seeking the Face of God
