Beyond Secular Faith – Politics as Theology


Summer School | 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM | Institute of Philosophy Edith Stein, The Pontifical University of John Paul II Faculty of Philosophy, International Center for the Study of the Christian Orient

The title  “Politics as Theology” of the 5th Annual International Summer School and Conference 2017 “Beyond Secular Faith”, stems from a conviction that only a faith liberated from the conceptual restraints and ideological presuppositions imposed by secular culture – a faith centered radically on Christ – can offer a word of hope and reason to human life.
