On November 16 & 17, 2015, the Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study hosted "Afternoon of Christianity: Church and Theology for a Post-Secular Age," a conference led by Msgr. Dr. Tomáš Halík. Tomáš Halík, 2014 Templeton Prize Laureate and Professor of Philosophy at Charles University in Prague, served in residence fall 2015 as a Templeton Fellow at the NDIAS.
This conference brought together scholars from history, philosophy, political science, sociology, and theology to examine the crisis of modern Western Christianity and how its members can seek the path to a deeper, more credible and mature form of church, theology and spirituality.
This programming was made possible with generous funding from the John Templeton Foundation.
