SCIO is pleased to co-sponsor a public lecture by Dr Lluís Oviedo Torró of the Pontifical University Antonianum of Rome titled ‘Environmental issues as a new framework for Christian dialogue’. Lluís Oviedo Torró’s particular interests focus on the relationship between Christian and scientific anthropologies and on empirical approaches to religion and theology. At present he is conducting research trying to incorporate cognitive insights into theological and biblical hermeneutics. His interests point in two fundamental but clearly linked directions: the conditions of religious survival in advanced societies; and the theological impact of the scientific study of religion and the human person.
The lecture takes place on Friday 16 February at 4pm at The House of St Gregory and St Macrina, 1 Canterbury Road, Oxford, OX2 6LU. Entry is free and no booking is required. Further details can be found on the Ian Ramsey Centre for Science and Religion website.
