Philosophers read the Gospels


The Society of Christian Philosophers: UK 2021 Workshop

The Society of Christian Philosophers: UK is pleased to announce its third workshop on the theme ‘Philosophers read the Gospels’. This workshop is dedicated to the late Rev'd Dr David Efird.


Aquinas is, perhaps, best known for his Summa Theologica and his Summa Contra Gentiles. But he didn't think of these as his most important works. Rather, he thought his commentaries on Scripture held that place of honour. In this workshop, we return to this Thomistic tradition where philosophers offer exegeses of salient passages of Scripture, and our focus will be on Gospels so that we might uncover and interrogate philosophically significant aspects of the narratives of Jesus's life, death, and resurrection. 


Speakers include:

Dr. Katherine Dormandy, Assistant Professor of Philosophy, University of Innsbruck

Dr. Joanna Leidenhag, Lecturer in Science-Engaged Theology, University of St Andrews

Dr. Faith Pawl, Adjunct Instructor in Philosophy, University of St. Thomas

Prof. Eleonore Stump, Robert J. Henle Professor of Philosophy, Saint Louis University


Date: June 2021

Time: 9:00 – 17:30

Location: Huntingdon Room, King's Manor, University of York, YO1 7EP, UK
