Theology on Tap - "Living the Good Life: The Central Role of Virtue in a Flourishing Christian Life"
Thursday, August 29th:
In the second epistle of St. Peter, Christians are exhorted to supplement faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge. Previous to, and since Peter’s writing in the 1st century, the concept of virtue has varied, and been expanded upon across cultures. Contemporary Catholics are gifted with the works of Church fathers, philosophers and popes, to better understand what virtue is, and how it is integrated in life. So from where did the concepts of theological, cardinal, moral, heavenly, etc, virtues develop?
This lecture will present a historic survey of the philosophy of virtue, and discuss its practical application in the pursuit of holiness and evangelization.
