Theology Department’s Père Marquette Lecture to feature Dr. Sarah Coakley

The Theology Department will host the 53rd annual Père Marquette Lecture, entitled “Sensing God? Reconsidering the Patristic Tradition of ‘Spiritual Sensation’ for Contemporary Theological Ethics,” on Sunday, April 3, at 2 p.m. in the AMU 227. 

The event will feature Dr. Sarah Coakley, Norris-Hulse Professor of Divinity Emerita at the University of Cambridge. 

The event is free and open to the public. 

The Père Marquette Lecture was established in 1969 under the auspices of the Department of Theology. The series was endowed by the children of Joseph A. Auchter, a Milwaukee banker, in honor of their father. In keeping with its history, the lectureship continues to recognize and honor theologians of international renown whose work has made an outstanding original contribution to the field. The lectures are published by the Marquette University Press.
