Old Dogs, New Tricks: Early Christian Attitudes Towards Marriage, Sexuality, and Children – Crossroads of Theology Series

January 9 @ 5:15 pm - 6:30 pm

Meghan Bowen

Join us for the first Crossroads of Theology lecture of 2020. Crossroads of Theology is a series of talks and socials for young people exploring the intersection of theology with current affairs and culture. This series is hosted by the students of Regis College, the Jesuit School of Theology in Canada. While Crossroads talks are primarily aimed at those aged 18-35 years old, students of all ages are welcome to attend.

Meghan Bowen, PhD Student at Regis College, will present “Old Dogs, New Tricks: Early Christian Attitudes Towards Marriage, Sexuality, and Children”.

Discussions around the theological meaning of marriage, human sexuality, and procreation seem to be omnipresent in the Roman Catholic Church and beyond. Our questions, however, are not new. Over a millennium ago, the Patristic writers wrestled with the same concerns. What insights did they gain into the meaning of conjugal life? And, perhaps more importantly, how might it shed light on our own questions today?

Talk begins at 5:15, followed by a reception with free food and great company! This is an excellent opportunity to meet fellow-students who are studying around the GTA. Don’t want to go alone? Bring a friend! The more the merrier!

Please make sure to register below; having correct numbers ensures there’s plenty of food to go around!
