Christian Culture Lecture Series

The Christian Culture Lecture Series, founded in 1992, is an annual set of lectures by internationally established scholars of religion, scripture, church history, and ethics. 

Invited speakers provide a minimum of two public lectures on topics related to their scholarly expertise and one intensive seminar which will concentrate on their current research, especially unpublished research. 

The series gives particular attention to themes highlighted by Vatican II. Although most invited speakers come from the Catholic tradition, other Christians and non/Christians are also invited.
