  • Symposium on the Pope’s Regensberg Speech at U of C on 11.01.06

    Posted by Chicago Boyz Archive on October 27th, 2006 (All posts by )

    I received the following today:

    The Lumen Christi Institute presents a symposium at the University of Chicago on Benedict XVI on “Faith, Reason and the University”: The Regensburg Address in Context, with remarks by Hans Joas, University of Chicago, Michael Kremer, University of Chicago, Souleymane Bachir Diagne, Northwestern University, Paul Griffiths, University of Illinois, Chicago. Wed., Nov. 1, 2006, 4:00-6:00 PM, Room 101, Hinds Lab. for Geophysical Sciences, 5734 South Ellis Avenue. For more information and the revised text of the Pope’s address (with footnotes), see the notice at

    We have had some discussion of this speech and its meaning and impact on the blog. If you are able to get to Hyde Park for this symposium, I am sure that it will be good, as all Lumen Christi events always are.

    Incidentally, I think the best thing I have seen about the speech was this piece by Lee Harris.

      Is there a chance for a video (or at least audio) for Chicagoboyz? (This would seem perfect for our monthly faculty discussion group.)

    2. Lex Says:

      I don’t know. Send them an email and ask. They might at least record it if you ask then to do so.

    3. Robert Schwartz Says:

      I second the recomendation of the Harris article.
