Cardinal Schönborn at Berkeley, CA

Renowned theologian and present Archbishop of Vienna, Christoph Cardinal Schönborn, OP, recently visited the Dominican School of Philosophy & Theology (DSPT) in Berkeley, California, to discuss his book, Chance or Purpose: Creation, Evolution, and a Rational Faith, which was published last year by Ignatius Press. The presentation took place on February 15, 2008. I happened to catch the back-and-forth the other night on C-SPAN2, and I found it to be very good! The DSPT has created a website if you wish to view the presentation. I encourage you to do so.

Apparently Cardinal Schönborn made his way to northern California after an earlier speaking engagement in San Diego. I'll have to find out whether he stopped to use the bathroom at the Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo. He would have been in good company.

Thanks to Carl Olson for the scoop, who also notes that the DSPT has the 2008 Aquinas Lecture available for viewing. The lecture, entitled, “Thomas Aquinas and the Problem of Human Suffering”, was given on February 14, 2008, by Eleonore Stump, Ph.D. Stump is the Robert J. Henle Professor of Philosophy at Saint Louis University.
