Day of Study

DSC01631aThe Saint Benedict Forum is committed to nurturing intellectual work done from the heart of the Catholic Church as well as fostering a serious ecumenical community of scholars committed to thinking deeply about the most important things.  The Day of Study is designed to bring regional scholars together for a day of leisure and fellowship in order to think together about a common topic.  Some participants are invited to present informal papers, while others are invited to be thoughtful interlocutors in the extended discussion periods following each paper.

The first Day of Study took place on March 7, 2015 and was devoted to Fundamental Issues in the Western Understanding of Deification.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve been both intellectually stimulated and spiritually nourished at the same conference.  The fact that both aspects of formation co-existed speaks to your fine leadership.”

– Kirsten Guidero, Marquette University

The second Day of Study took place on February 20, 2016 on the question of Homosexuality and Anthropology.
