On November 10, 2011, Boston College’s ‘Church in the 21st Century’ hosted a discussion on the Catholic Intellectual Tradition on Catholic University Campuses. This event featured two prominent voices in the world of Catholic philosophy, theology, and university identity: Boston College’s own Fr. Robert Imbelli (who facilitated the conversation) and Charles Taylor, renown Catholic philosopher and cultural commentator.
C21 has posted this 34 minute conversation on their website (see link below). The Catholic Intellectual Tradition animates the Boston College campus through its informing of administrative policy and curricular development. It would not be outlandish to suggest that the idea of Boston College as a Catholic University is unintelligible without an understanding of the heritage and living presence of the Catholic Intellectual Tradition.
This short video serves as a useful tool for all people associated with the Boston College community, Catholic and otherwise, to grow in their understanding and appreciation of the integral bond between the Catholic Intellectual Tradition and Catholic Universities.
