The Theological Legacy of Gerard Mannion
The late Gerard Mannion, holder of the Amaturo Chair in Catholic Studies at Georgetown University and a senior research fellow at the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs, was a dynamic and creative theologian at the cutting edge of issues relating to church and society, ecumenical and interreligious dialogue, and ecclesial identity. Mannion published widely in the fields of ecclesiology, ethics, and public theology, as well as in systematic theology and philosophy. His unexpected death on September 21, 2019, was a loss to Georgetown University and the theological community worldwide.
In commemoration of the first anniversary of his death, this online discussion will bring together a number of Mannion’s colleagues to consider the contributions he made to the church, the academy, and the world. Acclaimed theologians Mark Chapman and Vladimir Latinovic will speak about their forthcoming book Changing the Church: Transformations of Christian Belief, Practice, and Life (2020), which honors Mannion’s legacy. Peter Phan, Cristina Lledo Gomez, and Brian Flanagan will respond and reflect on the theological contributions of Gerard Mannion. The conversation will be moderated by Dale Irvin and Patricia Madigan.
This event is co-sponsored by Georgetown University’s Department of Theology and Religious Studies, Global Irish Studies Initiative, and Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs in collaboration with the Ecclesiological Investigations International Research Network.
