Theology Between Church & University Lecture
November 13, 2015 - 7:00pm
Presenter: William H. Irwin, CSB, BA, MA, STL, SSD (Pontifical Biblical Institute) Professor Emeritus
In 2015 St. Michael’s celebrates sixty years of offering degrees in theology. Theology has two communities it answers to: the community of faith and the community of learning. Without the church it’s the study of religion.
Without the university it’s catechism. But to live in two communities without losing touch with either means continual adjustment. To chart the development of theology at St. Michael’s since that first convocation in 1955 is to chart its adjustment to a changing church and a changing university as they adjust to a changing world.
Father Irwin has been a priest for 56 years. Graduate studies in Rome and Jerusalem prepared him for his teaching of biblical studies. He has served as Dean of Theology at St. Michael’s and President of Assumption University in Windsor and also on the Boards of both institutions and of the University of Windsor.
