The Marquette Lonergan Project colloquium will officially announce the formation of the International Institute for Method in Theology, a shared effort between the Marquette Lonergan Project, the Lonergan Research Institute at Regis College in the University of Toronto, and the Gregorian University, Rome.
The International Institute for Method in Theology is a research institute devoted to sponsoring and promoting collaborative international research efforts in the following five fields: systematic theology, philosophy, the economics of globalization, the establishment of an ecological culture, and the promotion of critical realist practices in the retrieval of Christian and other religious sources.
The Institute was founded to honor a dream of the Rev. Bernard Lonergan, S.J., one of the great Catholic and Jesuit theologians of the 20th century.
