Conference to explore Christ through eyes of Pope Benedict XVI
By Nissa LaPoint
The Augustine Institute is sponsoring a conference Nov. 11-12 that will be inspired by Pope Benedict’s two volumes called “Jesus of Nazareth.” The conference is open to the public.
Titled, “Seeing Jesus through the Eyes of Pope Benedict,” the conference will host speakers including apologist Scott Hahn and author-professors Edward Sri and Tim Gray.
The conference will draw speakers that are scholars of Nova et Vetera, a Swiss journal the Augustine Institute publishes in English that follows the ecclesial, Thomistic and dialogical perspective of the publication’s founder Cardinal Charles Journet.
The first day of the conference will have an academic focus. It will be held from 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. Nov. 11 at the Institute, 3001 S. Federal Blvd. in Denver.
Guest speakers who will focus on talks aimed for the general public will gather from 8:20 a.m. to 2:20 p.m. Nov. 12 at St. Thomas More Church, 8035 S. Quebec St. in Centennial.
Conference registration for both days is $25 for students and $75 for general registration. For more information, call 303-937-4420 or visit www.augustineinstitute.org.
