A Pilgrimage Renewed: Life as a Christian in Post-liberal America – Dr. Patrick Deneen, University of Notre Dame
The American political order has entered a new phase, comparable to the long period of decline experienced by Rome after its peak of power. Christians are learning anew the need for forms of psychic withdrawal from the fortunes of the imperium, but why such a change is necessary and how to undertake this new pilgrimage is a subject of hot debate. Professor Deneen will discuss the decline of the liberal order and the hopes for Christian renewal.
