Religious Pluralism, Christ and the Cosmos

On Not Believing in the Social Trinity

May 16, 2017
12:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Location: New North Philosophy Conference Room (New North 204)

In Keith Ward’s book Christ and the Cosmos: A Reformulation of Trinitarian Doctrine (2015), he analyses theistic belief in a scientific context, working toward articulating a sense of the "cosmic Trinity" to help make theism more intelligible in the twenty-first century world.

At this event, Ward explicated differing and competing interpretations of the doctrine of the Trinity as he discussed why it still matters and how it fits into a scientific account of the universe. He addressed how such a doctrine can be articulated in a way that helps build understanding and bridges between Christians and believers from other faith traditions, and offered time for a discussion with the audience.

This event was co-sponsored by the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs, the Graduate Program in Religious Pluralism of Georgetown's Department of Theology, and the Ecclesiological Investigations International Research Network.
