Living Theology Series continues at Fairfield University

The Living Theology Series, a program of the University's Center for Catholic Studies, continues with "Will the Real Jesus Please Stand Up? Biblical Studies Meets the Quest for the Historical Jesus" on Saturday, Oct. 15, at 9:30 a.m. Hugh Humphrey, Ph.D., professor of Religious Studies at Fairfield, will lead the workshop in the School of Nursing Auditorium.

Dr. Humphrey received his M.A. and S.T.B. degrees from the University of Louvain, Belgium, and he holds a Ph.D. from Fordham University. Humphrey is the author of "A Bibliography for the Gospel of Mark, He Is Risen! A New Reading of Mark's Gospel," and the forthcoming "A Composition History for the Gospel of Mark."

For the last 10 years, he was co-chair of the Task Force on the Gospel of Mark for the Catholic Biblical Association.

The Living Theology Series is free and open to the public and features three Saturday sessions a semester on the Fairfield campus. The final session, "Recent Developments in Catholic Ethical Teaching," will take place on Saturday, Nov. 12, and features Frank T. Hannafey, S.J., Ph.D., associate professor of Religious Studies at Fairfield University.

The first series in Living Theology began last spring and attracted participants from throughout Fairfield County. The sessions are intended to help local Catholics and others learn about the latest thinking in the church and develop their own thoughts on these important topics.
