Bishop Christopher Coyne (Auxiliary Bishop, Archdiocese of Indianapolis) continues a 4-part podcast on the thought of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, SJ with Father Mark Hunt (Holy Family University, Philadelphia). Father Mark has studied Teilhard for over 30 years and teaches a course at Holy Family University on Teilhard’s thought. This podcast series was prompted by comments posted to Bishop Coyne’s blog concerning a short reflection on hope penned by Teilhard.
In this third podcast, Bishop Coyne and Father Mark discuss what Teilhard brings to the ‘theological table.’ Recognizing that there are many angles and approaches to Teilhard’s thought, this conversation focuses on theological insights and questions that arise from Teilhard’s writings. The relationship of science and theology, evolution and Original Sin are some of the topics considered in this podcast.
Listeners may want to investigate additional dimensions of Teilhard’s worldview. The American Teilhard Society’s webpage contains valuable resources to learn more about Pierre Teilhard de Chardin and the society’s activities including the annual meeting of the society in New York.
