MARK D. JORDAN – FRIDAY NIGHT LECTURE
Mark Jordan, Niebuhr Research Professor at Harvard Divinity School, will present a lecture entitled “Memory-Book: Prologues to the Summa of Theology” on Friday, February 10, 2023.
Re-reading Thomas Aquinas’s prologues to the stages of the Summa, he will describe asceticism of memory as one practice for learning Christian theology in its wholeness. He will then ask what that practice could mean for contemporary readers who approach pieces of the Summa with quite different memories of Christian contradictions—or none at all.
This lecture is open to the public.
