PUBLIC LECTURE: SCIENCE, SECOND PERSONS AND THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT
Tuesday 24 July, 6–8pm
Jesuit College of Spirituality, 175 Royal Parade, Parkville

Jesuit College of Spirituality is pleased to announce this lecture by Dr Andrew Pinsent. What does science have to say about spirituality? Over 750 years ago St Thomas Aquinas offered an account of the way that the Gifts of the Holy Spirit form (or should help form) the character of anyone living a Christian life. In this talk, Dr Andrew Pinsent from the University of Oxford offers an interpretation of Aquinas’s work based on recent research from psychology and neuroscience. These insights are not only theoretical but should help enrich anyone trying to live a Christian life in the modern world. Dr Pinsent is an international speaker, in great demand across the globe. He is a polymath with doctorates in both physics and philosophy, a former particle physicist at CERN, a member of the United Kingdom Institute of Physics, and is currently Research Director of the Ian Ramsey Centre for Science and Religion, a Research Fellow of Harris-Manchester College and a member of the Faculty of Theology and Religion at Oxford University.
Cost: Gold coin donation
