The Inaugural Albacete Lecture on Faith and Culture
Saturday, October 22, 2016
“Culture as a By-Product”
A lecture by Rémi Brague on the origin, relevance, and aim of the Christian culture in a time of epochal changes.
Rémi Brague is Professor Emeritus of Arabic and Religious Philosophy at the Sorbonne, Paris, and Romano Guardini Chair of Philosophy (Emeritus) at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich
Monsignor Lorenzo Albacete, soul, mind and mentor of Crossroads, chaired its advisory board from its establishment in 2007 until he passed away on October 24, 2014. In order to honor his memory, to deepen his profound intuitions about the interaction of culture with religiosity and reason, and to follow his shining example of dialogue with people in various walks of life by meeting them at the level of human experience, Crossroads has established the “Albacete Lecture on Faith and Culture.” Its goal is to become an annual occasion and a meeting place, a “crossroads," where we can develop an understanding of why culture matters and where it finds its origin.
The lecture is free and open to the public. Reservation required.
