Former Master of the Dominican Order to Speak at Fordham


On Feb. 12, speaker Timothy Radcliffe, O.P., a major figure in global Christianity and former Master of the Dominican Order, will come to Fordham for a discussion on Christianity in the contemporary imagination.

“How Can Christianity Touch the Imagination of Our Contemporaries?”
Tuesday, Feb. 12
5 p.m.
Tognino Hall, Duane Library | Rose Hill Campus

Father Radcliffe will also join graduate and undergraduate students during the day on Feb. 13 for seminars on the role of theologians in the Catholic Church and the place of Catholicism in the contemporary world.

A Dominican friar in the English province, Father Radcliffe was the first member from his province to serve as Master since the Order’s foundation in 1216. He held the office from 1992 until 2001. His best-selling bookWhat is the Point of Being a Christian? (Burns & Oates, 2005) won the 2007 Michael Ramsey Prize for theological writing.

The event is co-sponsored by the Graduate School of Religion and Religious Education, the Department of Theology, and the Francis and Ann Curran Center for American Catholic Studies.
