Join the Alcuin Institute for one of our signature Socratic Convivia—our fancy way of saying food, friendship, and good conversation centered around a particular set of primary sources! In keeping with the Diocesan formation theme Revelation: Natural & Divine, we will take a look at various subjects such as the nature of truth, the harmony of faith and reason, the relationship between Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition, and the tensions that seem to exist between faith and the findings of modern science. Our hope is that, as we read these texts and engage in discussion, we'll be able to learn more about four central elements of God's revelation to man:
- “Quid est Veritas?”—“What is Truth?”
- What is the relationship between Faith & Reason?
- How do Scripture & Tradition fit together?
- How can we reconcile apparent contradictions between Faith & Science?
