Christian Culture Lecture Series

A Presidential committee, established January 28, 1992.
See minutes and attachments of the February 12, 1992 meeting of the Committee on Nominations.

PURPOSE

The Christian Culture Lecture Series is an annual set of lectures by internationally established scholars of religion, scripture, church history, and ethics.

Invited speakers will provide a minimum of two public lectures on topics related to their scholarly expertise and one intensive seminar which will concentrate on their current research, especially unpublished research.

The series will give particular attention to themes highlighted by Vatican II. Although the majority of invited speakers will come from the Catholic tradition, other Christians and non­/Christians would also be invited.

A Presidential Committee, with two members named by faculty, two by the President, and one named by the Students' Union chaired by the President or his/her delegate will determine the scholars to be invited and the general themes to be addressed.

A substantial honorarium, travel expenses, and a reception in honour of the speakers will be the responsibility of the President.
